Japanese Clematis Iris (Iris ensata)
Varying coloured clematis-type flowers, often boldly marked. The leaves form dense clumps. As with all iris, the tubers are harmful if eaten.
After foliage has died back in Autumn cut back to just above the water surface. If trimming is left until spring take care not to damage emerging shoots.
Plant in full sun to partial shade in damp or boggy soil that won't dry out.
- Flowering period: June & July
