Belamcanda chinensis is native to Asia. Thomas Jefferson grew this heirloom flower in his garden at Monticello. It is an unusual perennial for a beautiful late summer blooming border. The flower resembles a miniature Day Lily but it is actually a member of the Iris family. Sword like rich green leaves and clusters of delightfully speckled flowers develop in waves from mid June to late September. The blooms are followed by the Blackberry-like seed formation when the pods dry and open. Great for single cuts or in arrangements.
