Frosted Velvet Miniature German Iris

Put on the Ritz
There is something elegant and formal about these velvety falls with their crisp, contrasting edge. Let Frosted Velvet dress up the front of your mixed perennial border—because it has a great bud count, you will have plenty of blooms to enjoy through an extended season. You could also cut them for fresh-flower bouquets. This German iris stays compact at a mature height of 20-22" tall, perfect for a little pot on a sunny patio. It's accompanied by bright green, swordlike foliage that remains attractive through spring and summer. It has won multiple awards since its 1988 introduction by K. Fischer.
