Ja­panese wa­ter irises

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

By far the best and most spec­tac­u­lar of all bog plants are Ja­panese wa­ter irises (Iris en­sata). These flow­er­ing de­lights ac­tu­ally thrive even in wet, sat­u­rated clay and pro­duce huge, flat, blue or pur­ple blooms, half the size of din­ner plates. Most can be planted out from pots at any time of the year and need an oc­ca­sional heavy wa­ter­ing dur­ing summer.
