Japanese Iris Ice Cream

Japanese Iris Ice Cream

A sweet way to round out a border or garden bed, generous plantings of Ice Cream Japanese Dinnerplate Iris make excellent conversation starters as well as creative and colorful displays. Boasting a massive 6" size, the creamy white blooms have soft blue accents and bright yellow centers. And though they share the same classic flower form as traditional iris ensata, the similarity ends there. That's because Ice Cream's blooms are nearly twice the size of typical garden-variety Japanese cultivars, giving them a leg up in borders, garden beds and cut-flower arrangements. Customers with moist soil sites will love Ice Cream's performance and versatility, too. Plant them near water features or along the edge of a pond. They naturalize nicely, returning yearly with greater vigor and increased bloom.
