What you have appears to be a "candylily" aka Pardancanda norrisii. The
species "Blackberry lily" is either orange with spots or rarely, yellow.

The "candies" are a fertile hybrid of Belamcanda chinensis (blackberry lily)
and I. dichotoma. The proper name is P. norrisii, named after Sam Norris who
developed the original strain.

At this moment, you can find strains that are larger than 2" across,
extremely tall (over 40"), or extremely dwarf (12") and in all colors from
purples and whites to reds and yellows, with or without spots. :-)

Thanks for your responses!  After looking at the blackberry and candy lily
photos in the archives, I'm convinced that's what this is.  Do any of them
bloom larger?
