Rhizomatous plant with an upright, elegant habit, forming dense clumps of evergreen linear leaves.
Flowers abundantly in May, producing distinctive ivory-white flowers with apricot yellow and lilac markings.
Essential oils from the iris plant are widely used in perfumes, while a variety of symbolic meanings have been attached to its highly-coloured flowers: the ancient Egyptians associated them with divine power, the Greeks with the rainbow, while in Arab cultures they were placed on the tombs of warriors.
