Iris versicolor 'Purple Flame'

Blueflag

Purple flame-like foliage emerges in March and is followed by a display of rich and abundant flowers. The true beauty lies in the intense show of vivid, plum-colored foliage. Plant along a pond edge or in a moist garden site where the roots can receive consistent moisture to achieve the best early season color.
