 A rhizomatous member of the iris family, the Blackberry Lily produces fans of sword-shaped foliage and 2 inch flowers in mid to late summer.  The numerous blooms (each lasts only a day) are borne for several weeks running.  When the blooms fade, a cluster of blackberry-like seeds replaces each flower.  Best left to form a healthy clump in the border, by a roadside or in the wild garden.  Native to India, china, Japan.
