Iris ensata ‘Purple Sensation’


Availability : Available

Description :

This iconic Japanese iris produces abundant flowers in June-July and forms large clumps.

Sturdy and fast growing, Iris ensata is a semi-aquatic plant* that likes the waterside and can also thrive in good, garden soil that is sufficiently moist in the summer (heavy, clay soil).

The Iris ensata 'Purple Sensation' cultivar produces giant, 15 cm diameter flowers, as velvety as can be. In the garden we like the yellow/mauve combination with the Ligularia and Lysimachia genera or matching tones with Astilbe chinensis 'Vision in Red'

* Plant above the waterline to keep the rootstock dry in winter.
