How to grow
How To Grow Blackberry Lily From Seed: To start the Belamcanda Chinensis seed, sow them directly in the garden about 1/4 inch deep in the spring after all danger of frost has passed. Or you can start indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost.
Grow in humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out in summer, in full sun or partial shade. Transplant after danger of frost when two true leaves have appeared. If you have existing Blackberry Lily Freckle Face plants, the tubers from mature plants transplant easily.
