     I love Blackberry Lilies too.  Mine are almost finished blooming now,
but they have been blooming since the beginning of June.  They can reach up
to 55" here.

     There must be something else involved in this.  They did readily form
bee pods in Lexington, KY and have done so here.  Last year, some insect
destroyed the pod crop, which was not as heavy as this year.  So, I still
don't know if I will have seeds to harvest.  Are you under any watering
