Japanese Iris - Oh So Elegant
Floating atop long slender stems, the elegance of Japanese Iris is unmistakable. White with varying degrees of lavender veining on the larger petals of the falls, the smaller upright petals are deep violet in stunning contrast. A sunny dot of yellow finishes the show. A water lover; very happy near a water feature or pond. Japanese Irises have been cultivated in Japan for over 500 years and once were restricted for enjoyment by royalty only. Combines well with Ferns and Astilbe. Iris Ensata Fortune will need consistent moisture and some shade in Zone 9.

Iris General Information

Japanese Iris display some of the most spectacular flowers of all the Irises. Blooms are large, ruffled and flat in form. The last Iris to bloom-generally several weeks after the Bearded Iris. Perfect beside a stream or a pond. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Iris Plant Care

Requires ample moisture in a slightly acid, heavy, rich soil with ample organic matter. In Spring, if rainfall is not sufficient, give extra water until bloom time. Heavy feeders, apply a balanced fertilizer such as 12-12-12 in spring just before blooming.
