Iris ensata 'Lion King'



Common Name: Japanese Iris

 Absolutely extraordinary! Nothing less could describe the incredible show this Japanese Iris puts on in early summer.

The gigantic 7-8" flowers were fully double, with standards and falls much larger than the species.  Each petal displays a wide, grape purple edge that feathers into the pure white center. A small sunshine yellow signal is tucked down into the base of each widely ruffled petal.

Unlike the Tall Bearded Iris, the beardless Japanese Iris has a flat bloom, narrower leaves, and smaller, more compact rhizomes. They have the largest flowers of all irises and make wonderful spring accents for the edge of water gardens.  Japanese irises are the latest to bloom, about a month after the Siberian irises. Japanese Iris makes quite a  show in sunny gardens or naturalized landscape spaces. They require moist soil through the growing season to be at their peak. Their need for moisture makes them great in moist areas, such as near the edge of a creek, pond or even a man-made water feature. Japanese Iris returns each year in greater numbers if the plants are left alone. The flowers are excellent in fresh-cut bouquets.
