Very pretty flowers, grew easily in a large container with barren strawberry and baby blue rug junipers in midday sun. The seed pods are supposed to look like blackberries--they're forming now so we'll see.

Medium 18-24" - Plant 12" apart. zone 4-10. Bright yellow star-shaped flowers that bloom into fall. Will be taller (to 4') in rich moist soil. Resembles an Iris with its strong sword foliage. Tropical-like flowers in the summer age to an ornamental seed pod which dries nicely for arrangements.
