The Variegated Sweet or Zebra Iris belongs to an ancient group that was the ancestor to our modern Tall Bearded Iris. They are tough, deer resistant, drought tolerant, long-lived and resistant to borers and disease.

Hardy, spring-flowering, rhizomatous-rooted bulb — Fragrant, pale lavender-blue flowers and striking, white-edged leaves
Habit: Flower spikes grow to 4-feet high and stand of foliage spreads to 3-feet wide
Culture: Plant in well-drained garden loam and full sun to part shade
Hardiness: USDA Zones 3 through 10

Enjoy! I grow this Iris in zone 4 and it's beautiful foliage adds so much interest to the garden!
