A beautiful, long-lived, bulbous (rhizomatous actually) iris relative from South Africa, with flowers of a glorious, bright azure blue produced over a long bloom season (early Spring thru Summer). The 2 ½/2’ flower spikes are borne atop tough, clump forming, sword-shaped leaves. Lovely along pathways and beside water features. A natural for our Pacific Coast weather! Hardy to 20 degrees. Reseeds! Good soil is best. Shade in hotter areas.
