Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An intriguing Iris relative from higher elevations in South Africa which has narrow vertical foliage and dark yellow very Iris-like flowers. This has proven to be nicely hardy for us here and may well be hardy to Zone 6 especially with mulch. This provides that important vertical element in your design scheme.
