  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July

    These beautiful water-loving irises are ideal for planting at the margins of a medium to large pond. In early and midsummer each branched stem is festooned with up to five, beardless, reddish purple flowers, each with yellow and white markings. A handsome plant that is easy to grow in boggy conditions.

  • Garden care: Cut foliage back in autumn and divide large clumps immediately after flowering. They do not come true from seed, so removing the spent flowers will prevent unwanted seedlings from appearing.

  • Harmful if eaten

      A:

      Hello,

      These plants are hardy, so they can stay in the ground (pond margin) throughout the winter.
