Description

A very compact but chic bitone iris with deep blue petals, dark purple to black veining on the falls and dark blue beards. Winner of two awards.

Extend your season with these charming, petite beauties, which are the earliest irises to bloom each spring. Because of their short stature, they aren't affected by strong winds. Layer in front of your taller irises or plant as a focal point at the front of a border or rock garden, because they aren't short on pleasing shapes and vibrant colours!
