Info

This gorgeous iris relative is coveted by collectors and it's easy to see why. Aunt May behaves herself in the garden unlike the rest of that side of the family. With mostly evergreen, creamy variegated foliage with dainty yellow flowers in mid summer this is a clumper that spreads out slowly. Nice accent, border, or wall plant. Stands out in any container combination. Easy and frost hardy to mid USDA zone 8.
