    Design IdeasHere is a white Iris that is simple to maintain and fits into virtually any garden, from prim perennial borders to low-maintenance parking lots! One of the best all-purpose plants for home landscapes, it stands up to heat, drought and neglect. Flank gateways with them, add to courtyards and entry gardens, or spot into larger foundation plantings, where the vertical reed-like foliage makes a great accent or contrast. A perfect plant to grow beside koy ponds, streambeds and fountains. Evokes the Mediterranean countryside when planted below or beside wall fountains. Or, evoke ancient Rome with this Iris in classical terra-cotta pots on pedestals or lined on steps. Grow as a low hedge around edges of porches and decks.

  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in fertile, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old flower stalks. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
