Blackwater German Iris
Dark and Ruffled
Blackwater is an award-winning iris that's sure to excite in the home garden. Dramatic ruffles increase the mystery and allure in these inky, dark-colored blooms. Plant it around some brighter purple tones to bring out the robust blend of deep purples. Gardeners have found this one to be pretty aromatic too—try it in a unique mixed bouquet. It will also attract butterflies and beneficial pollinators to garden beds. The ever-popular German Iris has that classic elegance that makes a spring garden so strong. An easy-to-plant fall rhizome you can leave to chill overwinter and watch in spring as it bursts up with tons of extravagant blooms. Give it well-drained soil and sunshine and you'll enjoy years of low-maintenance beauty and fresh spring bouquets. They can also be divided every few years for a bigger, more impressive display. Rarely bothered by deer.
