    All right! Three correct replies! I was first introduced to Blackberry lily (Belamcanda chinensis) by someone who gave me its seeds — without my having seen the plant. Then I moved to a new place in western NC and found the Blackberry lily growing there. It’s been spreading itself around nicely and providing lots of colorful blooms during the hot days of summer.
