Iris Versicolor WILD WINE is a water-loving iris. In Australia, plants wake up from their winter sleep in late winter. These remarkable plants boast broad straight leaves that look like swords, which grow in large clumps. During the summer, the flower stalks are sent up from the base of the plant, and each cluster produces three to four blooms adding a touch of splendour to any landscape. Prepare to be captivated by the striking beauty of velvet wine red-violet flowers with a vibrant splash of yellow and white at the top of the petals.
