Iris plants have been fan favorites for years and years due to their mesmerizing flower display. However, this one in particular is also known for its foliage. Iris Variegata (Iris ensata 'Variegata') has striking variegated foliage of green and creamy yellow that gives this Iris an all-season appeal.

We'd consider Iris Variegata a foliage plant that happens to have the added bonus of beautiful blooms. As summer starts up in full force, you'll find pristine purple blossoms atop strong, sturdy stems.

The Iris isn't fussy about soil. All it needs to stay happy and healthy is a spot in full sun and some well drained soil. Consider adding a layer of mulch around the base to conserve water and protect the roots.

Try planting in your front garden so guests can see it as they walk up to your front entryway. Or you could add them to your perennial flower bed out back to enjoy while lounging on the patio.

Feel free to cut a few stems from variegata to bring indoors as a lovely bouquet. It'll liven up whichever area of the house you put it!

Your Variegata Iris needs plenty of water throughout the season to continue to look its best. It rewards consistent moisture by being useful in many ways. Best used around pools, ponds and water gardens, and for mass plantings. It can also be used in difficult banks for preventing erosion.

Don't go another season without this versatile perennial. Order Variegata Iris to finish your outdoor projects today!
