Boldly variegated white brushstrokes on mint-green lance-shaped leaves form evergreen clumps. It might bloom, though that is not what it's all about, and it has not set any seed in our garden. Not to worry, though, this Iris is a terrific landscape asset; striking and bold strap leaves are visually exciting right through the winter—a good way to get striking spikes without those more tender spiky plants. Well-behaved and obliging in terms of soil & sun exposure. At Dancing Oaks it seems to thrive in the high shade with the soil kept fairly dry in summer.
