Iris variegata hybrid
Believed to be a possible natural hybrid iris of unknown origin from the Middle East. From a tiny rhizome found in an abandoned Swedish garden by a cliff in 1998, iIam now finally able to offer a few, large flowering sized rhizomes after nearly 20 years of propagation. Once settled, this increases steadily and well. However, it is unlike any other iris. The leaves go completely dormant in winter and completely new ones are produced each year. It enjoys planting 5-10 cm's deep, and not at ground level like most other germanicas. It also flowers much later from early June onwards. Each flower spike produces at least 15 flowers, so the flowering lasts for a very long time with quite a nice scent.
Fully hardy and highly recommended.
