For sale by Hillborn Plants

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

10+ in stock. Very pretty South African Iris relative for free draining soil. The flowers appear from grassy foliage and are a novel combination of red and salmon-pink with a white reverse. Flowers and and flower spikes on plants now. Half-hardy but my outdoor plants look ok after a -8.
