Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: May and June
Hardiness: fully hardy
Scented, soft blue flowers with yellow beards in May and June and strap-like, semi-evergreen leaves that are green-grey and cream striped. This variegated, bearded iris looks spectacular all year round. Perfect for a sunny, well-drained, mixed border, the tall branched stems need staking with bamboo canes in windy, exposed areas.Garden care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the upper-most third of the leaves to minimise the incidence of wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring.
