This very rare plant is a cultivar of the American Copper Iris, and has the slender, arching foliage typical of this species. It produces a profusion of butter-yellow blooms with an almost orchid-like appearance on tall stems in May to June. It is a good alternative to our native yellow water iris for smaller ponds. 

If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 2 Iris fulva 'Marvell Gold' plants per square foot of ground or 1 plant per linear foot of pond edge. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant.
