Large, icy blue and white ruffled blooms are real eye-catchers! The frothy flowers have a very broad form and extra-ruffled petals!
With their full ruffled falls, lush upright petals and a dizzying array of color combinations, German Iris rival orchids for beauty, but are much easier to grow. Each sturdy stem has several buds just waiting for their turn to shine. A steady progression of blooms keeps beds, borders and rock gardens alive with color in late spring. Plant all eight varieties for a bold and beautiful display in your garden. The landscape possibilities are endless!
