Candy Lily

Candy lily, Pardancanda norrisii, grows to 36″ tall. It is a cross between Belamcanda chinensis, blackberry lily, and Pardanthopsis dichotoma. Candy lily is very similar to blackberry lily but with larger flowers in a wider range of colors from blue and purples through yellows, reds, oranges, and bi-colors, with or without dark spots on the petals. Individual blooms last for one day but keep coming for weeks. They have iris-like foliage and are often mistaken for iris, especially when they first emerge

Plant candy lily in average to rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plants divide easily in spring or late summer. Plants often self sow. As an iris relative, watch and treat for iris borers.
