These are great accent plants when planted in clumps. They are perennial from zone 4 to zone 10. Where heavy frosts and freezes occur, they will die back in the fall and reappear in the spring. Though they are called Leopard Flowers and Blackberry Lilies, these plants are of the iris family. Not only do these plants have gorgeous flowers, growing atop 18-24" stems, there will also be bright green seed-pods, slowly turning to jet-black as the summer progresses.

These plants are growing in 6" pots and there are multiple fans per pot. These plants are so well-priced, that a large clump planted in your landscape or in large pots, is easily affordable.

Contact me via T-Mail if interested.

These plants are now beginning to show formation of flower-stems. Some are already in their bud-stage. They will begin to bloom in earnest mid-July and will continue to bloom until September. When many other flowers are wilting, these are taking off. September/October is when their seed-pods will take center-stage.

Thank you so much for telling me this, @crawgarden. Do you have to mulch? I can increase their range. Thumbs up Where are you located? When do yours begin to bloom?

Live in zone 4b, just south of the twin cities, no mulch required. They bloom from June to July typically.

I did, Betsy. Your coloration is so different from mine though. Mine have always been very bright, deep orange with red freckles. Most of mine still haven't started forming inflos but they are close to doing so.

Mine are not, unfortunately they have been overcome by shade. I had forgotten about them until your thread, but seem to remember that they bloomed June to July about the same time as the Husker Red Penst. Time for another transplant to my ever decreasing sun!

They will still bloom, RJ, even without sun. I have some of mine on the shade-side of a greenhouse, and though they bloom late, usually not until the first of August, they all bloom.

I will watch for them, I liked how they would twist up and the black seeds that came from the plant.

I was expecting the bright orange color, too. I'll have to look at my completed trades and find the person who sent me the seeds.

Never mind Betty I just purchased some seeds of various colors but that's Pardancanda norissi for sure. Ken those are some very healthy looking plants I'm sure they'll go like hot cakes. I'd buy some if I didn't already have them. Thumbs up

No one seems interested in them, Daniel, even at less than half the retail cost. Everyone likes to talk about the plant though.............. Sighing!

Plants Admin

Fantastic plant, I highly recommend picking some of these up to anyone that may be even the slightest bit interested. I've had my clump of them growing for 4 years now in New Hampshire (I have the cultivar 'Freckle Face'). Everything Ken is saying about them is spot on. I'd buy some in a moment if I did not already have it...
