■ (Spec) 'Gone With The Wind'

2016, Tony Avent

'Gone With The Wind' (Tony Avent, Unregistered) Spec (Iris domestica). 72" tall, China, zone 5a-8b. Introduced by Plant Delights Nursery 2016. PDN catalog notes "(aka: Iris domestica) We first saw this amazing irid in 2010 when visiting the Atlanta Botanic Garden. Evidently a plant vendor years earlier had offered what appeared to be a cross of Belamcanda 'Hello Yellow' and the taller orange form of Belamcanda chinensis. We were so impressed after growing it in our home gardens, we felt it worthy of a name and Belamcanda 'Gone with the Wind' was born. Belamcanda 'Gone with the Wind' produces 5' tall (6'-7' is possible in part sun) spikes with terminal clusters of lightly speckled butterscotch yellow flowers starting in early July and ending in October (NC) with branched clusters of seed heads that resemble blackberries. Frankly, my dear, we think you'll really like this! "
