Iris ensata ‘Variegata’


Variegated Japanese Iris

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.288.800


Japanese Iris have been treasured in Japan for centuries, with many excellent hybrids selected over time. They require neutral to acidic soil, and lots of moisture until blooming time is over. Plants will be happy at the waterside, and can even be grown in pots sitting in water. This selection forms a vigorous clump of grassy green and white-striped leaves, bearing drooping purple flowers. Great for cutting. This will need to be divided every 3 to 4 years in late summer. Fertilize in spring and again just after flowering is over. A wonderful foliage accent. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
