Iris Versicolor Kermesina

Iris Versicolor Kermesina is a beautiful shallow water marginal plant.  This iris has vivid magenta coloured flowers, marked with white stripes.  It flowers from early spring into summer and the foliage remains into Autumn. Perfect for planting in the shallow margins of your ponds and lakes.  Also suitable for wetland areas, Iris are a good plant for providing a wildlife friendly habitat giving newly emerging aquatic animal a hand to get out of the water.
