Description
Iris versicolor 'Kermesina' is a particularly beautiful colour variation of the Blue Flag Iris. The plummy-purple blooms with conspicuously veined falls are borne on branching stems from early summer. With a dense, clump forming habit, it will gradually form dense lumps of narrow, strappy foliage. This resilient hardy perennial is a lovely choice for planting in the shallow margins of ponds where it provides valuable cover for wildlife. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12"). Planting depth: Zones 1 & 2 to 15cm (6") below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Iris versicolor plants thrive in damp, acid or neutral soil in a sunny or semi-shaded position. These moisture loving Iris require a rich, fertile soil which has had plenty of well rotted organic matter added into the soil prior to planting. Grow Iris versicolor in moist, boggy soils or submerged in the shallow margins of ponds with the crown to a maximum depth of up to 15cm (6") below water level. Choose a position in sun or semi shade.
More Info
When grown in damp borders, Iris versicolor requires reliably moist soil. Water if necessary during dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. Overcrowded clumps of Iris plants can be divided in autumn after flowering. Mulch around the base of Iris velsicolor in spring to help retain moisture at their roots. Iris that are grown in ponds may be cut back to just above the water surface in autumn.
