Pardancanda 'Sangria'

Common Name: Candylily

 'Sangria' is a larger flowered candylily with a long season of interest. Three inch wide, plum purple flowers with alternating petals brushed with gold unfurl from spiral shaped buds in mid through late summer. They are held on scapes just above the blue-green, iris-like foliage.

After blooming, shiny black seedpods are produced in the fall, extending this plant's season of interest across three or more months. The seedpods are often used in dried arrangements.

The genus Pardancanda (Candylily) was developed by crossing Belamcanda chinesis with Pardanthopis dichotoma. The resulting genus combines traits of both parents.
