This 2010 American Iris Society Award of Merit winning clone of the easy-to-grow Chinese roof iris is from a 1989 Jim Waddick collection near Wolong in Sichuan, China. For us, this is one of the most vigorous clones of the Chinese roof iris we grow, although it forms a tighter clump and doesn't spread like the forms more common in the trade. Starting in mid-April (NC), the 20" tall x 2' wide clumps of soft, lush green foliage are topped with stalks of rich lavender flowers, each highlighted with small darker purple flecks...a hummingbird treat.
