Iris collectors will love Going Green, because it brings a rare color into the mix. On the falls, there are slight olive-green tones in among the yellows and browns. Green tones are unusual for iris, and in this case, it adds to a antique-looking blend of colors for a truly special iris. Going Green is helpful in a mixed iris border. Put this tall 42" iris with big, eye-catching flowers behind your mid-size and dwarf iris to create layers. Iris germanica 'Going Green'
