This evergreen iris loves moderate shade but also does well in considerable sunlight.
Description and Distribution:
It grows to around 80cn tall, with large evergreen sabre-like leaves that simply never fade away in the manner of the vast majority of irises. Flowers are a dull purple but it comes into its own in autumn when its large seedpods split open to reveal rows of orange-red seeds that remain well into winter.
Western Europe, including Britain, from France south and east to N. Africa, Italy and Greece.
