Attractive both in and out of bloom, this variegated Japanese Iris has beautifully striped green and creamy white, sword-like foliage. Large bright royal purple flowers with a small yellow signal are produced from early to midsummer.
Unlike the Tall Bearded Iris, the beardless Japanese Iris has a flat bloom, narrower leaves, and smaller, more compact rhizomes. They have the largest flowers of all irises, and make wonderful spring accents for the edge of water gardens. Japanese irises are the latest to bloom, about a month after the Siberian irises.
