Flowers: June-July.  Plant in sun & moist soil.  HxS 60x60cm

This lovely Japanese water iris has beautiful rich purple flowers which are a distinctive contrast to the strong white variegation of the leaves.  In our experience the variegated form grows shorter than the species.  This is an easy and ultra hardy Iris, giving a different colour to our native forms.  It should be planted near water but not in it, as a marginal.  Hardiness rating H7.  Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Plant irises quite shallowly, so the rhizome is on or just below the surface.  Split the plant every four or five years to maintain vigour.  Propagate by division or seed.
