We received this selection of the native Iris versicolor from plantsman Jesse Perry, who discovered it in the Green Swamp region of Brunswick County, NC, just north of the town of Supply. When the foliage emerges in spring, the base of the leaves are attractively suffused with dark purple pigment. The clumps of Iris versicolor 'Brunswick Beauty' are topped in late spring with 2' flower spikes of narrow-petaled, intensely purple flowers...a very nice deer-resistant, hummingbird-friendly selection of our native Iris versicolor.
