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. 

The irises we sell are all established plants which have been grown individually in pots. 

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