Iris foetidissima 'Citrina'

Stinking iris


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An interesting version of this valuable evergreen Iris which has light lemon flowers instead of the typical uninspiring dull lavender mauve. The flowers are really just a teaser for the main show which is the big seed pods spitting open in late summer and fall showing brilliant red -orange seeds. Excellent evergreen foliage.
