Product Description

Planting in moist soil can be tricky and rarely ever produces the kind of display you had hoped for when you set out to create an eye-catching water feature. Our Purple Flame Iris actually thrives in moist sites including wetlands, along riverbanks or near a man-made Koi pond. Wet soil allows the leaves to turn purple before the irises begin to emerge. The late-spring blooms are highlighted by bicolor foliage—the first of its kind—of green on one side and rich purple on the other. Plant Purple Flame as close to the water as possible to enjoy the more unusual purple foliage. Iris versicolor 'Purple Flame'
