A gorgeous scented iris with large flamingo pink blooms that bear coral pink beards. These appear in May and June and sit on tall stems which emerge from a rosette of sword-shaped grey-green leaves. Plant in really bold drifts for a spectacular effect. It is a good plant for dryer gardens.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the upper-most third of the leaves to minimise the incidence of wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring.
