Iris versicolor is a wild flower of Eastern North America. It will bring an intense area of blue to the waterside, plants will also perform well under average border conditions, as long as they are moist. Medium-sized flowers of bright violet-blue with ruffled petals sit amongst clumps of tall sword-like leaves. In smaller water features, consider growing this in large pots submerged to the rim.

Available as a 3L plant.
