Drop dead gorgeous, rich indigo-blue Iris-like blooms to 4" across, intricately veined in amber and white appear throughout Summer in waves atop tall, strong stems to 5' tall. A tough and EASY Brazilian member of the Iris family, its tall, stiff evergreenleaves form handsome clumps in a few years and provide a year-round vertical accent, as well a nice background for shorter blooms. Offsets curiously appear at the tops of spent stems and are easily detached for new plants!Not fussy and CLAY tolerant, but more blooms with compost rich soil and Summer water. Drought tolerant and deer resistant!
