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
