Yellow Walking Iris
Trimezia martinicensis


Showy in shade, easy and reliable where root hardy. It is the easiest of the Neomaricas I've grown.

25 years ago, I rented a house that had Yellow Walking Iris spring up out of what looked like a "dead" flower bed. After living in the home for several years, I moved and took some of my offsets with me. To this day I still have Yellow Walking Iris in my yard. Great for along side-walks and striking planted in a tight group.

It is a most hardy plant...lots of "walking" shoots... I am planning to put them in a narrow bed, (which over the years has been difficult to keep something looking healthy and attractive) with a northern exposure, so somewhat out of direct sun. The constant ever green foliage will look nice against a white back round exterior concrete wall of the hair salon. I have a well shaded area, where I first started them, and have subsequently taken from that rather large stand or 'clump" of them to put in various places all over the property... I can always count on it to do well.
