Iris ensata Great White Heron

Iris ensata Great White Heron

The flowers of this variety are the largest of the group, measuring up to a stunning 11in across. The white petals hang gracefully and flutter in the lightest breezes. Stems are 4 to 5 feet tall and strong. It's hard to beat.
Japanese Iris (formerly I. kaempferi) bloom in June and July, well after most other Iris have finished blooming. In the border, their rich colors and elegant form add a whole new dimension. Japanese Iris require full sun (partial shade in the South) and rich, acid soil. They prefer constant moisture during the growing season, well-drained soil in winter. Plants perform best if they are divided every 3-4 years. Winter protection is advisable in exposed places in Zone 4. Not suited to the dry heat of the desert Southwest.
