Iris pallida 'Argenteo-Variegata'

Iris pallida 'Argenteo-Variegata'

Common name Dalmatian iris
Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-9)
Flowers blue (late spring)
Size 24-36"
Light sun-part shade

Received in a plant trade as 'Aureo-variegata', but given the creamy-white (rather than gold) variegation, I'm relabeling it as 'Argenteo-variegata'. Either way, it's a refined iris; in fact, it gets a bit lost in the boisterous back-of-bog area where it lives now, so I'll probably have to move it one of these days.

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