Here's an eye-catching modern hybrid that offers lush, well-formed blooms in a magnificent and totally unique coloration. Pristine white standards rest above white falls edged in broad bands of carmine red—a hue so rich and striking, you'll be able to enjoy it even at a distance. Strong stems keep flowers standing tall in cutting gardens and sunny borders. This is an easy-to-grow iris with flair for days. Iris germanica 'Color Strokes'

Mulch in colder climates and remove in early spring before growth starts.

Glaucous-green, sword-like fans of stiff upright leaves with some dying back in colder climates in winter.
Remove spent flower stems after blooming. In late fall, cut back foliage to 6" fans. Clean plant debris before winter to prevent borers overwintering.
