This iris is a variegated form of the British native species, with gorgeous creamy-yellow and green striped leaves in spring. The variegation slowly fades back to green as the typical yellow iris flowers appear in early summer. As you would expect from a variegated plant, it is slightly less vigorous than the wild form, which is useful in the garden since the wild Flag Iris is too vigorous for most people.
Please note that all irises may cause skin irritation and are somewhat poisonous if eaten.
If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 1 Iris pseudacorus 'Variegata' plant per square foot of ground or per linear foot of pond edge. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
