Each little 2" bloom is unique, and all together they make a bold statement in reds and oranges. The cute name comes from the way the petals are spotted, which adds a bit of fun to your show. They'll appear in a large swath late in summer, keeping the garden lively while it transitions into autumn. The flowers are followed by unique seed pods that burst open to resemble blackberry-like seeds, which stick around through winter, providing interest in the garden and in fresh and dried bouquets. The bladelike foliage adds an elegant texture to a border. Belamcanda chinensis 'Freckle Face'
