Iris ensata 'Pink Frost' is a delightful, fast-multiplying, shorter selection that makes a 2' tall x 3' wide deer-resistant, hummingbird attracting clump, topped in early June (NC) with a blanket of 6-falled (all 6 petals arch downward instead of upright) mauve pink petals, highlighted by an inner white pattern just above the bright yellow throat. As with all Japanese iris, they perform best if divided every 3-5 years and grown in moist, rich soils.
