Iris Louisiana ‘Black Gamecock’. A very popular shallow water, marginal pond, plant. This beautiful iris has intense purplish black flowers with a band of yellow. Flowers from spring to summer.

  • Height 70-100cm (27-39in) when mature.

  • Flowers between June and July.
  • Cut back after the foliage had died in late autumn to 3 inches above the water level
  • We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.
  • We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
