Iris relative indigenous to Peru, with bright yellow flowers. Winter-dormant. We grew seedlings in winter of 2019, and had strong foliage return by late March of the following year. We'll probably have to wait at least another year for flowers, though.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: left fence border, foundation border, front fence nursery area
