Iris unguicularis 'Purple Snow' is a 2014 Plant Delights introductions...a seedling selection from Iris 'Mary Bernard'. We selected this exceptional clone because of its good vigor and lovely dark purple flowers from November through March. The flowers of Iris unguicularis 'Purple Snow' are dark purple with a contrasting narrow purple eye zone, flanked with white chevrons...quite attractive.
