Presby's Crown Jewel German Iris

Prized for its Dramatic Contrasting Coloration!


When you're searching for that one iris that is sure to make your garden pop, consider Presby's Crown Jewel. You'll marvel at your mid- to late-springflower beds and back borders when they are filled with big, 6" irises of pristine white finely edged in a deep, rich blue-violet plicata trim. Soft yellow beards add just the right amount of complementary color. Each sturdy stem holds 7-9 flowers for a very full display with little maintenance required to keep them healthy and happy. Crown Jewel is tall—reaching up to 36" in height—and looks superb planted along a sunny fenceline or foundation. Exhibits superior disease and insect resistance, and tolerates a range of soils. Zones 4-9.
