The flowers sit on long, arching purple stems that arise from a broad clump of shiny deep green leaves. Each stem produces 4 or 5 flowers, making this plant a real showstopper! The Iris Robusta Gerald Darby is perfect for adding a splash of color to any garden or landscape. It thrives in shady spots and can flower from mid-June into July.

Repotting or planting

9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting, place in the pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish, plants over 60cm height growth will benefit from repotting into a larger mesh basket or should be planted in gravel to prevent them from falling over. 3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.

Care instructions

Remove flower heads soon after flowering to encourage new flowers and prevent self-seeding. Trim old foliage after dying back in Autumn
