This pond plant is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its foliage in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose it all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: damp, humus-rich, acidic soil
  • Depth of water: 0-15cm (0-6in)
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A beautiful, moisture-loving iris that can be planted at the edges of a pond, where its upright strap-shaped foliage will offset that visual impact of the flat expanse of water. In early summer, it produces sumptuously coloured red flowers with just a flash of yellow at the base of the falls.

Ideally these should be planted out as soon as you can after they have been delivered, but if you are keeping them in a pot, then how often you need to repot them will depend on the age of the plant and the size of the pot.
