Description

Produces an abundance of blooms.
You'll love how this award-winning iris fills borders, gardens and arrangements with snowy white blooms banded in bright blue at the falls. Each sturdy, double-branching stem stands tall to hold 7-8 of these beautifully wavy, 5" flowers! Lively yellow beards add a pop of sunny colour to the scene. Perennializes well, returning with more vigour each year. Iris germanica
