Be on the lookout for this snake in the grass. Snake's Head Iris is a unique, winter hardy perennial that really charms with its exotic, vibrant green blooms accented by dark purple, nearly black falls. It is quite a looker in sunny borders where it can be admired up close, and makes a fantastic cut flower, too. The mid to late spring flowers have a subtle fragrance that intensifies in the warmer temperatures. A wonderful naturalizer that adds brilliance to rock gardens and woodland sites.
