Belamcanda chinensis 'Hello Yellow' Blackberry Lily



Belamcanda chinensis 'Hello Yellow' produces compact clumps of bright green, sword-like leaves that give rise to branched stems of bright yellow, star-shaped blooms in late summer. Unlike most Belamcanda, 'Hello Yellow' flowers are not spotted. Belamcanda is also known as Blackberry Lily because the seed heads open to reveal clusters of black seeds that resemble blackberries. This is a rhizomatous perennial that will also self sow.

Botanical authorities have changed the botanical name of this Asian perennial to Iris domestica. It is sometimes called Leopard Lily in reference to the blooms, which are typically spotted.

Belamcanda chinensis 'Hello Yellow' prefers full sun to light shade and average, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
