Lori, Do you have much expierence with blackberry lilys? I was at a daylily garden and they had one of these lilys, I really liked it they gave me some seeds, then I checked on the internet and it had some negative comments in regards to it being invasive, I've had enough problems in the past with invasive plants that I thought I loved, I don't want a repeat any advice would be welcome. thank you, I live in central Penna.

I think blackberry lilies (Belamcanda chinensis) are really neat plants. We have grown them here at Viette's for years. I'm sure they will seed in the garden but I've never known it to be invasive in Andre's garden. The seed pods are very attractive when they break open, so if you are worried about it seeding in the garden, just harvest the flower scapes with their blackberry-like seed pods and use them as decoration in a beautiful fall arrangement (or just toss them in the compost pile)!
