For a dark and dramatic floral display near water gardens and stream beds, consider adding Black Joker to the mix. This striking Siberian Iris features velvety, deep purple falls trimmed in rich gold below lively lavender-blue standards highlighted with vivid yellow. This unusual coloration, combined with its exotic flower form, makes Black Joker a hit with gardeners and garden pros alike. They are easy to grow, tolerant of many soil types (though they prefer moist soil) and deer resistant. Plus, they have a fine fragrance that intensifies in large mass plantings. At 22" tall, Black Joker makes a wonderful addition to sunny borders and beds, too. Perennializes well, dependably returning year after year.
