Flowers: June-July. Plant in sun & moisture. HxS 90x60cm
Iris ensata, sometimes known as Iris kaempferi, is often seen placed as a marginal in water, but this is not recommended as they perform much better in moist, fertile soils near water. This iris is very tolerant of both clay and acid soil so is very versatile. Large rich purple flowers in summer, over upright architectural foliage. Easy to grow and ultra hardy. Pot size 1 litre basket.
Care & Maintenance.
Plant all iris shallowly with the rhizomes on or just below the surface. Split every four or five years to maintain vigour. Propagate by division or seed.
