“Can you identify this plant? These have sprouted without intervention and they are nice even without the beautiful blossom. I would appreciate your help.” – Larry L.

This is an Iris domestica, formerly Belamcanda chinensis, commonly known as a blackberry lily or leopard lily. These are a relative of the iris and have leaves similar to an iris with a flower that resembles a lily. They enjoy full sun, are relatively low maintenance and drought tolerant. They tend to be a short-lived perennial but will self-seed with the proper conditions.
