Deeply saturated, nearly black blooms are prized by iris lovers. It's such a romantic way to draw attention and it easily makes a focal point in the border. We selected three varieties with some of the most alluring nearly black blooms around, and created this value collection to save you 36% over buying each variety individually. If you're planting iris en masse, drifts of these dark blooms add a lovely contrast that makes the whole collection livelier. They are also especially striking alongside pastel blooms, the dark and pale really pop together. This collection includes Black is Black, Before the Storm and Superstition.
