Design IdeasWater Iris will grow well in water gardens or in low, soggy ground. Its variegated leaf is exceptionally beautiful and adds interest to otherwise solid green marginals and waterside plants. A great plant for backyard ponds or larger container water gardens.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
