Description

Huge, sugar-almond, pink blooms with fine crimson rays, falling a shade or two darker than the standard. Japanese water irises flower a bit later than the Siberica types, so mixed together in a border, they’ll give a prolonged flowering period. Put this one towards the middle or back as it’s quite tall. Will do best in moisture retentive soil, in sun to semi-shade.

Care Tips

Don’t allow to dry out in the growing season. Remove any dying foliage in autumn, old flower stems can be cut down after flowering
