Bought from Schreiner's Iris Garden. Very vigorous plant. Bloomed at the first year. Large flowers with deep rich purple!

Bloomed big and beautiful first year - strong stems handled springtime winds - they lasted several weeks - a good all round dark purple. Stood out against the blue of Victoria Falls planted next to them.
