Spuria

Spuria iris are a different type of iris with flowers very similar to the Dutch Iris, only they have much larger flowers and lots of different colours.  They have a tall sword like leaf which grows profusely as soon as the colder weather starts, ie from March, and continue throughout the winter months so by spring time they produce a tall clump of green leaves which break out into flower about October.

We have a limited variety of Spuria iris.

 

They make a great background plant in a garden bed during the winter months and springtime. They die down after flowering in late October/November and require very little if any watering at this time. They reappear in Autumn when the weather cools down and grow through the winter with lovely sword like green and lush leaves.
