One question, One thought. Question first:had the question put to me on
private line, Is the plant called "blackberry lily" a lily or an iris?
Person said that it is mentioned in latest issue of Organic Gardening, of
course I can't find my copy!! They said the leaves look like an iris, the
flower a lily, and the seed pod a blackberry. Sounds to me like psedecoris
(spelling). Don't want to give her misinformation. Any help will be
Second, thought on Thornbird, I think to get the full benefit of it you
have to see it with its Purple/maroon/blue combination HORNS not spoons.
Otherwise it looks like a dirty brown iris. When you see it in a clump
with those Pronounced HORNS it will make you take a second look Lorraine
