Oregon Iris (Iris tenax) Seed Packet WW


( / )

Surely one of the prettiest irises. This native wildflower forms grass-like clumps of emerald-green foliage which give rise to enticingly beautiful, almost exotic, blooms of varied colors. Colors most commonly range from purple to light blue, but can occasionally be pink to white. Evergreen, deer-resistant.
