Description

Iris pallida 'Aureo-Variegata', Dalmation Iris, is a Tall Bearded Iris with magnificent architectural sword-shaped foliage that is boldly variegated with gold and greyish-green stripes. From May through to late June/early July it has lavender-blue flowers that have a distinctive and delicious grapy fragrance.

Iris pallida 'Aureo-Variegata' is a showy plant with a high visual impact. Used with imagination in combination with other more obviously exotic plants it creates a refreshing change from the stereotypic exotic garden which all too often has a very narrow and predictable planting palette.
