Spectacular when planted en masse.
Though small in stature, this iris is long on beauty—and vigour. Its petite, 5 cm blooms of cornflower blue have striking, butteryellow and white markings down the centre of each fall. The flowers stand out beautifully against the plant's green, grasslike leaves. This deer-resistant perennial is a gorgeous addition to any border or patio pot. Take advantage of its excellence as a naturalizer by using it in a mass planting and watch its swath of blooms expand from year to year.
