Iris ensata 'Carnival Prince'
13th June 2007
The Japanese water Iris makes an excellent and reliable plant for the herbaceous border. I like them because they make good perennial clumps and flower freely.
'Carnival Prince' has rich purple flowers with a typical Iris shape.
I haven't managed to trace the raiser or an original description. Promesse de Fleurs in France seem to be offering the same plant, Tuinseizoen in Holland describe it as "soft blue"
but I think the consensus of European nurseries has settled on "purple".
