Is this a blackberry lily or a Mariposa lily? A non-gardening friend sent them to me and told me they were tiger lillies, lol.
Belamcanda chinensis a.k.a. Blackberry lily. One of the parents of the "Candy Lily". Let the seed pods dry on the plant and they will split open to reveal clusters of shiny black seeds with a vague resemblance to a blackberry.

Thanks. Now I wish I had a picture of a "Candy lily." These are so beautiful but the blooms are small and only last a day.
Thanks, Jersey Guy. Do the blossoms last any longer than the Blackberry Lily or are they any larger?
No, they're both about the same flower wise. The only real difference is the color.
