Presby's Crown Jewel German Iris

Description
When you're searching for that one iris that is sure to make your garden pop, consider Presby's Crown Jewel. You'll marvel at your mid- to late-springflower beds and back borders when they are filled with big, 6" irises of pristine white finely edged in a deep, rich blue-violet plicata trim. Soft yellow beards add just the right amount of complementary color. Each sturdy stem holds 7-9 flowers for a very full display with little maintenance required to keep them healthy and happy. Crown Jewel is tall—reaching up to 36" in height—and looks superb planted along a sunny fenceline or foundation. Exhibits superior disease and insect resistance, and tolerates a range of soils. Zones 4-9.
