This 1961 deer-resistant introduction from Oregon's Japanese iris guru, Walter Marx, is one of the shorter Japanese iris we have grown, topping out, starting in mid-June, at 26" tall with flat 6" wide flowers. The wavy petals are white in the center with a ruffled dark purple border...a very nice hummingbird treat. Moist to regular garden soils are fine for Iris 'Sweet Murmur', but divide the clumps every 3-4 years for best flowering.
