Plant Type: Perennials
A profusion of bright yellow, star-shaped flowers are produced above a compact clump of green, sword-shaped foliage. Though the typical Belamcanda flower is heavily spotted, 'Hello Yello' is not. Its foliage is sword-shaped like that of a tall bearded iris. Belamcanda blooms for weeks in late summer, and its season of interest is extended into fall with the interesting seed pods which develop. Tan, pear-shaped pods burst open to reveal clusters of black seeds resembling blackberries, hence the common name. They are persistant through the winter and are attractive in fresh or dried flower arrangements.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Likes moist soils, but poorly-drained ones, particularly in winter, can be fatal. Clumps slowly expand by creeping rhizomes. May self-seed in optimum growing conditions, which helps keep these somewhat short-lived perennials in the garden.
