Iris pallida 'Variegata'
Common names: Tall Bearded Iris, Sweet Iris
Stunning variegated yellow and green foliage.
Beautiful fragrant lavender flowers with yellow beards in late spring.
The scent almost resembles that of grape soda.
Use for edging, cut flowers, and in mass plantings.
Bearded iris need good drainage to perform their best.
When planting make sure that the rhizomes are just barely beneath the soil level.
Planting to deeply will result in fewer flowers.
Attracts butterflies. Deer resistant.
