This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Stunning, deep purple, velvety flowers with gold streaks on the falls appear from June above strappy, grey-green leaves. This clump-forming, beardless iris, related to the moisture-loving Siberian iris, makes an eyecatching feature in a boggy area of the garden, or beside water.

  • Garden care: Incorporate plenty of well-rotted garden compost or manure into the planting hole. Do not allow the plant to dry out.
  • Harmful if eaten
