Belamcanda chinensis 'Freckle Face' Blackberry Lily



Belamcanda chinensis ‘Freckle Face’ features a unique profusion of brilliant orange blossoms with red speckled, overlapping petals. Blooms are produced from compact green, sword-shaped foliage that support slender, naked stems and preforms best in full sun.

Prefers moist and well-drained soil ‘Freckle Face’ typically blooms in the late summer and the blooms are followed by tan, pear-shaped seed pods that form clusters of shiny black seeds, hence its common name of “Blackberry Lily”. Although Belamcanda ‘Freckle Face’ flowers last only a short period of time, they will produce a succession of blooms over several weeks. Deadheading blooms may encourage greater growth but removes the blackberry seed pods and prevents self-sowing.

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.
