How to Plant BLACKBERRY LILY Seeds

Sow Blackberry Lily seeds in cell packs or flats, cover with 1/4 inch of soil. Darkness will aid germination. Kept at 70° F., germination is uneven over 21-60 days. Transfer into 3 inch pots once the seedlings are large enough to handle. Grow on for approximately 6 weeks, then transplant into the garden 1 foot apart.

Comments: Blackberry Lily plants prefer full sun or part shade, regular water and well-drained soil. Excellent cut flowers. Seed capsules are handsome, unique additions to flower arrangements. Blackberry Lilies are deer resistant perennials.
