The lovely flowers of Belamcanda chinensis are always welcome, no matter where they show up.
This is an iris relative. Its leaves are very similar to an iris, except they fan out from a central stem.
The name comes from the black seed clusters that resemble blackberries. (Not pictured)
There is a wide range of colors. They have mixed over the years.
I love their wiry, tall stalks and the butterfly-like flowers.
Upon close inspection you can see their pretty little spots.
Easy to grow, propagate and move. Just don’t eat the seeds.
