Pardancanda norrisii 'Kiba Giants'

Candy lily

This is a mongrel. The genus was developed by crossing Belamcanda chinensis (Leopard Lily) with Pardanthopis dichotoma (Vesper Iris). The result is a very lovable mutt. 

Pardancanda norrisii is naturally variable, producing flowers, very late in the season, in almost any colour other than blue. Spotted petals, contrasting colours; petals that jiggle between two colours - the variations are almost endless. Nobody can predict what colour they will take. 

Even if you start with a single colour they will eventually mutate within themselves to produce variations. The only constant is the seed pods that are shiny and black. The flowers only bloom for a day but are constantly replenished. Not for lovers of pedigrees.
