Iris tectorum (Iridaceae)
(EYE-ris tek-TOR-um)
Japanese Roof Iris

Violet flowers are lovely in late spring, but we admire the dramatic low fans of broad leaves as much as the blooms. Foliage is flat and neat, and holds up well long after the flowers have faded. Roof Iris is vigorous and easy-going; tolerates light shade and appreciates sharp drainage, growing to form a dense clump. The perfect plant to make your thatched roof stand out among all your neighbors'!
