Geisha Girl Japanese Iris

Excellent for Moist Areas

Adds color and movement to the edges of streams and ponds, and other sunny areas that hold a lot of moisture. Elegant lavender, beardless flowers are mottled with lavender-purple, and perfect for cut-flower arrangements. Green, swordlike foliage adds vertical interest. Blooms in early summer. Grows 24-48 in. tall with an 18-24 in. spread. For best results, plant in humus-enriched, moisture-retentive, slightly acidic soil. Geisha Girl Japanese Iris does not perform well in sandy soil. Plant in an area that receives full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-9. Bareroot.
