This Iris is heat and drought tolerant! Touted as a new introduction from Brazil, this exciting, wide-leafed walking iris has lovely 3"-4" wide purple-blue flowers accented by strikingly brilliant jade foliage, which assumes a more clumping and upright habit than the more commin walking iris. The blooms of the iris are rippled with glowing white and exotic splashes of mauve and yellow offering refreshing color and texture. It's a repeat bloomer, producing flushes of flowers in succession, many on the same stalks from February through August, depending upon the size of the clump. New plants grow out of the flower stalks. The weight causes the stalks to kneel down toward the ground where a new plantlet takes root. As the process is repeated, the iris slowly "walks" from its original location. Will reach 4' - 5' tall, has a light fragrance and thrives in full sun to partial shade. It tolerates temperatures as low as 20 degrees. It is great for use in patio containers, mass plantings, foundation plantings, or as and accent.
