Candylily – Parancanda norrisii

This unique and exotic looking perennial thrives in full sun to part shade.  It makes a wonderful companion plant to a wide range of perennials.  Fine textured plants like ornamental grasses, liatris and yarrow show off the lily like flowers beautifully.  When paired with larger flowered perennials such as daylilies or echinaceas it become a terrific accent plant.

Candylily blooms in a variety of colors and patterns ranging from yellow to orange and red to maroon.  The strap like foliage (much like Iris leaves) are clean and disease resistant all through the season.  As the flowers fade they twist shut later becoming showy black seed pods.  This perennial makes an amzaing addition to any perennial border or cutting garden.
