Great grower. Nice branching, good substance - the works! One of the first ones to bloom each spring. Really can put on a show. Recommended.

This gorgeous Iris was given as a bulb to me. Little did I know what I was planting in the early fall as I placed it in the ground. By early spring it had arisen and began blooming and I was astounded at it's beauty. From my experience with this Iris, I found it to be a hardy plant, requiring little attention for the joy it gives by it's beauty. It loves the morning sun and blooms profusely in gorgeous clusters of large blooms so heavy I have to stake them to prevent the stalk from breaking or falling over. It reaches from 12 to 16 inches in height and is an asset to any flower garden....out shining most other lilies... SandPiper.....
