Winter Iris Blue Stripe – Irises bloom in the spring and summer, but Iris Unguicularis blue stripe also known as Algerian Iris blue stripe blooms in the winter.
There are several different colours of these Irises but this is the only variety with bold purple stripes on blue petals. All varieties grow around the same height.
They are all tough not needing much water to survive. Grows well planted in filtered light with fertile soil in hot climates.
In order to see the blooms better some people cut the foliage back before the flowers arrive, because the pointy long leaves grow around 20cm taller than the flowers.
On offer is a rhizome division of Iris Unguicularis with bare roots from my garden.
