Flower for the Day Blackberry Lily 7-18-16

Our blackberry lilies  (Belamcamdia chinensis) were a parting gift from our friend and neighbor  Russel Kraus as he was moving from his Frank Loyd Wright house many years ago. The lilies love the small berm where they live.

In the iris family they have iris type leaves, lily like flowers with red dots and in the fall they form really interesting pods containing black colored  berries.
