Info

An exceptional Iris, performing reliably in all but the shadiest of gardens, and having both beautiful flowers and valuable foliage. The sturdy stems of strongly scented, white flag iris flowers are are held above compact clumps of sword-like, grey-green leaves. Under favourable conditions it will repeat bloom several times throughout the year. As with all Iris feed well and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Prefers a well drained, alkaline soil and thrives in coastal conditions. Used to great effect in large drifts, mass plantings or as edgings, due to the neat foliage. The perfect companion for Iris germanica 'Nepalensis', a stunning combination.Extensively used by the landscaping industry, it is available bare rooted in any quantity. Trade enquiries welcome.
