The result of 40 years’ work by three generations of plant breeders, Park’s Candy Lily is a completely unique perennial, as brightly colored as a rainbow and as variously colored and marked as a bag of marbles! When you’re looking for something different and easy to grow, consider this hard-to-find, one-of-a-kind beauty!
The Iris-like plants are 3 feet tall and flower freely from midsummer ’til fall, producing masses of bright 2-inch blooms in every color and pattern. Superbly hardy, they laugh at heat and drought, and will bloom the first year in areas with long growing seasons! Nothing could be more beautiful than a tall stand of these blooms in every shade of yellow, blue, red, purple, pink, white, and orange–many with tiger stripes, polka dots, splashes of a second color, or other distinctive accents!
Derived by crossing Pardanthopsis dichotoma (which used to be classified as Iris dichotoma) and Belamcanda chinensis (better known as Blackberry Lily), the resulting hybrids were selected and reselected countless times to produce just the right combination of color, form, and garden performance. The selection was performed by our own Dr. Jim Alston here in South Carolina, so you know the resultant plants perform well in hot, humid conditions! But they’re also hardy all the way to Ohio, and are not fussy at all about soil. They’ll even bloom the first year in climates with a long growing season!
