It was a pretty Bi color and we really did not have any Japanese Iris at the time. It was not until this Iris bloomed that I really could enjoy how beautiful this plant is. The blooms are absolutely huge, petals upon petals of this double iris produce 7-8″ blooms! Japanese Iris are one of the later iris’ to bloom extending your Iris season.
