The lovely ladies of summer!

Iris Ensata Greywoods Catrina

By Darlyn Wilkinson – 2002

This lovely statement plant has slender green grass-like leaves that add instant architecture to any garden. It blooms in mid-summer in-between the tall bearded iris and daylilies. Clean white, signals with yellow markings and a basal greenish cast, rose violet veins radiating from a deeper rose area surrounding the signals. Spectacular; also known as Japanese iris, its flowers have a distinctively flattened appearance. Spreads by rhizome; deer resistant and hardy to 0°F. Requires full sun and regular watering while blooming, prefers less water after flowering. Great at the ponds edge or even in standing spring water but does fine in standard garden soil if watered. Registered at 35 inches but will be shorter if dry and taller if very wet.
