Thanks for your encouragement. I have
blackberry lily before but it
never multiplied on its own & it died after 2 yrs (Nebraska zone
4+). I got this one thru the master gardeners plant sale & it had 3
bloom stalks that all have seed pods. Since I only had one, I was not sure
if they would self pollinate or not. These may be air pods, but each stalk
has pods. I am just hopeful there will be some viable seeds & I
might get a few more. I have absolutely no plan to do any
hybridizing. Thanks for all your answers......in my soil, I will not have to
worry about them taking over. The raised bed they are in is built with landscape
timbers, only 3 high, so the soil is about 8 inches deep at best. Where I
live it is almost impossible to even buy a truckload of dirt let alone get good
dirt. Walmart is the only supplier of bagged soils so there is little hope
there as well. The contents of all the bags I have gotten there all look pretty
much the same. I would like to have some actual compost. Maybe santa
will bring me a compost bin if I am a 'good girl'. Lowes has a small one
for about $99. I will put it on my wish list.
