Iris sibirica 'Caesar's Brother' (Iridaceae)
This compact Iris is very popular, and for good reason — gorgeous velvet-purple flowers with golden-yellow highlights, and narrow leaves that create a pleasing vertical form in the garden. Seed pods add interest to dried flower bouquets. Happiest in moist sunny sites, but tolerant of average soil conditions.
