Iris versicolor is a hardy perennial that forms nice patches of distinctive narrow pointed leaves. In early summer, lovely blue Irises sit atop the foliage. Excellent for naturalizing around ponds, lakeshores, or any low wet areas, Iris versicolor looks great when potted and sunk into the water garden. Very attractive to hummingbirds. Other common names include Northern Blue Flag and Harlequin Blue Flag.
