Description

Easy-Care Colour
Pure white standards cast a gorgeous contrast to the intricate colouration of the falls, which amaze in golden yellow mingled with deep red and a gold border. Rightfully, this colour scheme will be on centre stage in the garden, thanks to its large blooms and abundant bud count.

Available in an array of unique hues and dynamic patterns, they create a diverse palette unlike anything you've ever seen. Enjoy their luxuriant classic forms, tall stems and scintillating shades. Iris germanica
