An iris with perennial narrow leaves that produces flowers from late spring to early summer on a stalk 3 feet high.  The flowers are beardless, flat and up to 6 inches across.  This iris prefers rich, heavy, moist soil if well watered in spring and summer.  Less water is required the rest of the year.
