A magnificent sultry bearded iris with lustrous maroon-red flowers held on tall stiff stems. Like all iris it's a natural multiplier and will spread over a number of years. Plant it in bold drifts in a sunny well-drained border.

  • 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 protect against wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Divide and replant about every three years.
