If you want to brighten up a garden...aquatic or otherwise, here is your plant. This strikingly beautiful, deer-resistant iris has creamy white-and-green, vertically striped, broad foliage. Each clump can reach 20" in height with a similar spread. In late spring, each clump is topped with attractive, pale lavender-blue flowers. Iris ensata is happy in all but the driest of garden soils.
