This iris is named after the world's largest waterfall. The ruffling, swirling standards and falls beautifully mimic the movement of a waterfall. Not only will you get a beautiful bloom season each year after Victoria Falls establishes, it'll often rebloom later in the season. Every few years, you'll also be able to divide the rhizomes and increase the spread of iris. Easy to grow in a border or naturalized in a drift, or put it in your cutting garden if you want gorgeous fresh-cut spring arrangements. Victoria Falls has won multiple awards for its gorgeous blooms and exceptional garden performance. Iris germanica 'Victoria Falls'
