Description

Looking for a water-loving plant that will add some color to your pond or bog garden? Iris versicolor is a beautiful option with its blue-purple flowers and attractive veining. Not only is it pretty to look at, but it’s also popular with pollinators like bees and butterflies.

Iris versicolor is easy to care for – just plant it in a sunny spot at the edge of your pond or bog garden and remove dead flower heads once the blooming season is over. You can also cut back the foliage in autumn and divide congested rhizomes every three years. So if you’re looking for a low-maintenance plant that will add some beauty to your outdoor space.

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. 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

After foliage has died back in Autumn cut back to just above the water surface. If trimming left until spring take care not to damage emerging shoots.
