Product Description

A dramatically dark entrant to the garden, Blackwater German Iris features jet-black flowers with hints of purple. Each velvety standard features a wash of purple toward the base, while the falls stay dark as night as the iris matures. Incredibly easy to grow, Blackwater Iris needs little watering or care after it becomes established. The striking dark tones of this award-winning variety are sure to draw the eye. Plant alongside other bright or white perennials for a unique, contrasting look, or pair with other purples to bring out Blackwater's violet tones. Deer resistant and drought tolerant. Iris germanica 'Blackwater'
