Product Description

Do you have a spot in your yard where water doesn't drain easily? Maybe you're building a rain garden, or maybe there's a natural ditch that's become a real low point in your design? Instead of drowning your plants and rotting your bulbs, try this Japanese iris. It does best when its soil is consistently wet, so it'll bring a unique floral color to an otherwise soggy scene. By unique, we mean that the purple petals turn a dark shade right around the yellow at the center, creating an alluring color contrast. Good Omen is a strong perennializer, so it'll bring years of relief to that tricky spot.

This is a great feature for a meditative water garden, as it's easy to bask in the wonder of nature with Good Omen around. The flower's large falls look almost like they're overflowing, the same way water cascades from the top of a fountain. You'll have no problem sitting back and getting lost in the beautiful flower form. What's more, it'll attract pollinators you can watch dance from bloom to bloom. And if you want your new iris a little closer, you can grow this in a container, or add fresh–cut blooms to your bouquets. Iris ensata 'Good Omen'
