Plant Finder: about Iris graminea

Description

Iris graminea. This species is a rhizomatous beardless iris. In the spring it will produce fine lance-shaped foliage with 10 fragrant, 8cm wide flowers; they will vary in colour from violet-blue to purple.

Cultivation

They are fully hardy, but some groups may thrive only in specific growing conditions. All irises are best planted in late summer and early autumn. Outdoors you can grow them in well drained, fertile, neutral or slightly acid or alkaline soil in full sun to lightly dappled shade. In order for irises to thrive, most of them need long, hot summers. Irises that require protection from rain or frost should be grown under glass.

Interest and use

Grown for their distinctive and colourful flowers. Suitable for coastal conditions.
