This lovely Iris has spring leaves slaked with lovely purple, deepening toward ground level…flowering stems to 36″ are purple black and topped by pretty purple violet, blue flowers May > June. Prefers constantly moist or wet soils (can be grown as an aquatic 2-4″ deep) – sun to part shade. An interesting hybrid cross between I. virginica and I. versicolor.
