Description:

Flashy, green and golden-striped foliage to brighten the garden! Light lavender-blue bearded flowers have a soft, sweet fragrance. Excellent near the front of borders where the foliage can be seen close up. Best in full sun, but this species is more shade-tolerant than many other species of iris. An herbaceous perennial.

Design Ideas: These uniquely variegated leaves are a welcome alternative to traditional Iris in the cottage garden. Plant in the perennial border or as a neat edging. Like all Iris, it's a natural in clusters around water of all kinds and stands out in rock gardens. Stunning candidate for very large antique or Asian ceramic pots, and makes good accent foliage combined with solid green-leafed Iris.

Provide humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish the root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture but tolerates mild periodic dry spells. Remove faded foliage as new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.

History

The iris is the source of the French national symbol, the fleur-de-lis.
