DESCRIPTION

Blueflag
Iris versicolor 'Purple Flame'

This brilliant selection from Mt. Cuba Center will have you gasping when it emerges in early spring with its blade-like foliage aflame in shocking purple! As tolerant as the species, its best, longest foliage color show is ensured by planting with abundant moisture. A native showstopper! Blue flowers in spring.

BENEFITS
  • Excellent wetland cover for aquatic wildlife
  • Violet late spring bloom attracts hummingbirds
  • Foliage color is longest lasting in moist areas
  • Thrives along the margin of a pond or stream
  • Outstanding massed even when the foliage changes green
