‘Gerald Darby’ Iris pairs stunning foliage and vivid blooms for unmatched color in the garden. A painterly purple tint adds a striking contrast to emerging foliage, fading away to green in summer. Showy blue-violet flowers are held on dark purple stems, blooming early to mid-spring. This native hybrid Iris thrives in wet soil, so plant it in a water garden, bog garden, or let it naturalize along the edge of a stream or pond. (Iris x robusta)
