This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The black fruits and yellow flowers of the charming, shorter-growing 'Hello Yellow' add beauty to the summer garden. Blackberry lily is an old-fashioned perennial that originates from Russia, China and India. It forms upright clumps of stiff, sword-like leaves of medium green or bluish gray-green. In summer, the tall, airy, branched stems appear on 'Hello Yellow' with light lemony yellow blossoms. These are followed by clusters of small, round, glossy black fruits that look much like blackberries.
Drought tolerant and resilient, Hello Yellow dwarf blackberry lily is a reliable and beautiful perennial for any sunny garden with average, well-drained soil. The only caveat is that this member of the iris family has a tendency to self-sow readily, so be sure to remove its seed heads before they drop to the ground. Incorporate this perennial in the mixed border or create a mass planting for tremendous summer appeal.
