Iris orientalis

Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-9)
Flowers creamy white
Size 16-36"
Light sun-part shade

White flowers with yellow signals. May be the same as I. ochroleuca, which has lived in our garden for many years without blooming.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
