This very robust iris makes a dramatic display of boldly veined, sword-like leaves, with large, violet-blue flowers accented by whitish markings at the base of the sepals. Unusually, the petals and sepals spread out flat making an attractive change from most others.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
