Iris 'Ann Chowning'


9cm pot £12.99

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.

    • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
