Hardy / Iris, Water Colchester

Iris, Water Colchester
Iris laevigata colchesteri

Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Found in Europe, this one is impossible to find in the US, but we can’t figure out why. Gorgeous white petals are mottled with dark purple-blue like fine paint splatters. A true water-iris, this needs constant moisture and will thrive even when crown is submerged an inch or two.

Size: 2 to 3 feet high

Light: Sun to part shade
