24 - 30 in. Sun Late Summer Orange 4 - 10

A profusion star-shaped flowers from bright yellow-orange to red are produced above a clump of green, sword-shaped foliage. Belamcanda flower is heavily spotted. Its foliage is sword-shaped like that of a tall bearded iris. Belamcanda blooms for weeks in late summer, and its season of interest is extended into fall with the interesting seed pods. Pods burst open to reveal clusters of black seeds resembling blackberries, hence the common name. They are persistent thru the winter and are attractive in fresh or dried flower arrangements.


Plant in full sun and well-drained soil. It especially detests soil that is wet in winter. This plant varies in height depending on the soil conditions. When grown in poor, dry soil, the height of the flower stalks will be about 24 inches. However, if the soil is rich and moist, they can grow up to 48 inches tall and will require staking. A heavy layer of mulch is suggested for northern winters. For best results, divide in early spring.
