Iris 'Little Snowman' is a stunningly floriferous selection of the Japanese Iris ensata, introduced in 1981 from the breeding program of Adolph Vogt. In 1996 it won the prestigious American Iris Society Award of Merit. Like a flock of doves atop the upright linear green foliage, the 25" tall, deer-resistant plants of Iris ensata 'Little Snow Man' are topped with large flat flowers in early June...a hummingbird attractor. Plant Japanese iris in a moist site (water leaks that you haven't got around to fixing work great) and divide every 3-5 years for best're sure to like this one!
