Blackberry lily (also commonly called leopard lily) is an erect, rhizomatous perennial which typically grows 2-3' tall. Lily-like, deep orange flowers (to 2" across), heavily spotted with deep red dots, have 6 petal-like perianth segments. Flowers appear in early to-mid summer in sprays above the foliage on naked stems typically rising to 3'.
Sword-shaped, iris-like, medium green leaves (to 10" long) are in flattened fans. Flowers give way to pear-shaped seed pods which split open when ripe (late summer), with each pod revealing a blackberry-like seed cluster, hence the common name of blackberry lily. Spotting on the flowers gives rise to the additional common name of leopard lily.
These plants bloom for many weeks and look great anywhere you put them. Formal and carefree at the same time!
