Outdoor Flowers & Foliage

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.

Remove the faded blooms and bloom stalks from amaryllis but allow the leaves to remain. Water only when the soil feels dry.
