Gerald Darby Versicolor Iris

Description
A colorful choice for moist areas, the edges of ponds, water gardens and even containers, Gerald Darby Versicolor Iris produces charming violet-blue flowers. Its clumps of narrow, arching, sword-shaped, variegated foliage are tinged with purple in the spring and add to its charm. Flowers give an elegant look to cut-flower arrangements. This iris grows best in sunny to partially shaded areas and may be grown in a few inches of shallow, standing water. It naturalizes well, so you'll enjoy more and more of them each year. The rhizomes may be divided after the iris blooms in late spring. Deer resistant. Iris robusta 'Gerald Darby'
