Lovely large, pure white form of the Japanese Iris. White with a lime green centre diffusing into the petals, in July and August.
Introduced in 1910. Good for cutting.
Happy in most soils, including damp.
Iris: Named after the goddess of the rainbow, probably because of the variety of brilliant flower colours. Irises were traditionally a symbol of power and much used in heraldry, being the symbol of the kings of France. They had a variety of medicinal uses, and orris root was important in perfumary. Irises grow in a variety of habitats, some in baking hot sun and others in water.
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
