This little-known North American species deserves more attention among UK gardeners. Awarded an AGM (Award of Garden Merit) by the Royal Horticultural Society, it has slender, arching foliage and wonderfully-unusual copper-red blooms in May/June, which introduce a completely new colour into the water garden. Plant in full sun for the greatest number of flowers. 

We recommend starting your Iris fulva off in a pot of 2 - 4 litres capacity. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
