ℹ A true gift from mother nature, Iris ‘Purple Flame’ was discovered by a staff gardener along a pond edge at Mt. Cuba Gardens! A garden show stopper, the beauty lies in the irresistible and totally unique foliage! Emerging in March, the purple flame-like foliage provides a splash of vivid and intense eggplant colour! This makes for a stunning contrast when these unique coloured blades are topped with an encore of rich and luscious purple blooms with Yellow and Maroon highlights! For best and longest lasting purple colour, plant in a highly moist or waterside area. Blades mature to lush green in summer creating a variegated multicolour effect when younger and older blades clash!
