Comments: After flowering seed pods develop and when mature and split open they resemble a blackberry from which they get their most common name. The darker spots on the flower petals gives it the name leopard lily. In the high climatic zones, flowering is in late spring and summer and in the lower zones flowering occurs in summer into fall.
