I was excited today to see that some blackberry lily seeds that I got in the ATP beta swap and winter sowed have finally sprouted ! Now I just have to figure out how to actually grow them Blinking

The plant DB says they are hardy to zone 4, so they should overwinter here okay -- maybe?
Thanks so much for those seeds, Cinda ( @Gardengus ) -- any words of wisdom about these plants for me?

Hurray!
They are easy care here in my zone . I just put them in the garden when they are 2-3 inches tall and let them grow .
Mark them because they are sometimes late to show in the spring.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving

Thanks, Cinda! I think I'll plant them near the foundation of our house, I'm pretty sure they'll be safe there. I'm so excited that they sprouted I would really hate to have the winter kill them off... on the other hand, now that I think about it, the seeds did sprout in a WS jug, so that seems like a good sign!

They used to self sow for me. But now that I think about it I haven't seen any babies in two years.

I found when I mulched heavy no seedlings , they must need good ground contact.

Mine spouted too Hurray! I have them in a big pot. I tried growing these before and never had germination so I was really pleased. Thanks @gardengus Cinda I tip my hat to you.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
