Can't wait to see them bloom!
Vicki from MI wrote on March 12, 2022

Having had poor luck germinating Black Berry Lily seeds from a different source (one out of 20 seeds sprouted), I decided to try Candy Lilies. I bought two packs of 20 seeds last fall, kept them in the fridge over winter, and started them inside in early February. It is now mid-March and 20 of them have sprouted so far! Some germinated at 3 weeks and some are still germinating 6 weeks later, so be patient. My single Black Berry Lily bloomed the same year it germinated, so I am hoping to see these Candy Lilies bloom late this summer.

Hardy past Zone 5

I've grown these in my garden in Southwest Minnesota for more than 30 years. Beautiful flowers and interesting dried seed pods. Super easy to grow. Plant the seeds where you want them to grow. Comes up year after year and performs well in conditions from dry to moist, partial to full sun. I buy new seeds about every ten years because the orange tends to become dominant after a few generations.

Cold-Hardy Plant with Unique, Beautiful Flowers
C in Brooklyn from NY wrote on August 21, 2019

The seeds took a while to germinate, but one of them grew steadily and started to bloom within a year from germination. The flowers look very exotic (to me) and beautiful. They are like the daylilies in that they only last a day. However, there are so many flower buds on the plant which actually multiplied into several plants; there are 1 to 5 blooming flowers daily. Very happy with this. Highly recommended.

Very nice flowers

Well, I was just looking around and saw the Candy Lily. I purchased them from you years ago, and I loved them. I saw the customer review and wanted to give an excellent customer review - the only reason I no longer have them is my daughter through them out when we were redoing my very small garden - I wanted to give an excellent review - they bloomed the first year and continued for years to come. Very nice flowers.

Patience is a virtue

I bought these seeds in very early 2011. Germination rates were very poor. From multiple packets of seeds, I ended up with maybe half a dozen plants. They were kept potted for the summer, then dug up and dried out in late autumn, and placed in sphagnum moss for storage in an outdoor storage area over the winter. All plants were still alive come spring. In July of 2012, one or two of the plants bloomed. Resulting flowers were ONLY orange with red freckles. Half a dozen seeds collected from only one pod. Waiting to see if 2013 brings any other color variations than what appears to be your basic Blackberry Lily. If you start these plants from seed, consider throwing away less money by using a heat mat and seed starter dome indoors. Use a basic potting "mix" (not potting "soil") that has been sterilized in the oven first. These seeds are tricky. Will NOT flower the first year no matter how soon you can germinate the seeds.
