  Blackberry lily  

Department of Natural Resources

Illinois Exotic Species:
blackberry lily Belamcanda chinensis

Blackberry lily, also known as leopard flower, may grow to a height of about three feet. Its flowers are orange with purple or dark red spots. Pear-shaped seed pods develop and split open in late summer, with each pod revealing a blackberry-like seed cluster, thus the common name of "blackberry lily." This plant is native to central Asia, India, China and Japan. Sometimes used as an ornamental plant, blackberry lily may escape cultivation and spread in the wild, taking habitat from native plants.
