Champagne Elegance is a very reliable performer—it's won awards for its show, and when planted in full sun it has exceptional disease resistance. The flowers are lovely, the champagne hues and ruffled form make them feel very sophisticated. Also, Champagne Elegance is a reblooming iris variety, so no matter if you create a mass planting, or surround it with other reblooming iris varieties, you'll have an extra-long iris season to look forward to.
