With the name Lion King you know this Japanese Iris is absolutely fabulous! Nothing less could describe the incredible show this Japanese Iris puts on. Planted in ideal moist conditions these majestic plants grow to a tall, stately height of 4 feet and will be covered with gigantic 7-8 inch flowers that are 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.
Different than the Tall Bearded Iris, the beardless Japanese Iris have flat blooms, narrower leaves, and smaller, more compact rhizomes. They have the largest flowers of all Irises, and make wonderful accents for the edge of water gardens. Japanese Irises are the last to bloom, about a month after the Siberian Irises. Japanese Iris are naturally at home next to ponds or streams where they benefit from the moist soil.
