About This Plant

  • Striking green and ivory striped leaves.
  • New foliage emerges in spring with creamy yellow margins that fade to ivory as the season progresses.
  • Classic lavender-blue flowers in late spring.

The brightly colored, striped foliage of Sweet Flag Irises effectively add interest and cheer anywhere they are planted. Their relatively short stature make them good for edging. These are the most reliable and disease-resistant of all Tall Bearded Irises.
