  • Loves Moist Well Drained Soils
  • Great for Back Row Perennial Planting
  • A Pollinator Favorite

The Iris Lion King (Iris ensata 'Lion King') stands out in any sunny area with its showy petals that are white with purple edging. Lion King has an impressive stature as it displays a regal exhibition with it fully double, large blooms, and a tiny splash of yellow is at the heart!

This exotic flower is absolutely breathtaking when blooming. With its sword-like leaves and showy flowers, Lion King is an easy plant to maintain, requires minimum care, and readily multiplies.

Iris is among the best-known and most loved garden plants. It prefers full sun, but will tolerate a little afternoon shade. This Iris needs plenty of water throughout the season along with well drained soil to looks its best.

Your Lion King will make a great addition around pools, ponds and water gardens, and for mass plantings. Just think about how well it will brighten the edge of a pond. It can be used on difficult banks to prevent erosion, makes magnificent cut flowers, and is resistant to deer!

Wildlife may not be interested but pollinators will be. Butterflies will flutter from near and far for a taste of this native's delightful nectar.

Lion King produces showy flowers in late spring on rigid stems, and the clumps will grow together and snuff out weeds. Snip a few stalks off and add them to your kitchen bouquets!

Popular and dependable, it is an easily grown Iris, and it spreads by rhizomes. If planted this year, it will be even bigger and better in a season or two!
