Moraea bicolor (Iris, Bicolor)

Iris, Bicolor

Moraea bicolor

South Africa native clumping perennial with long, dark green strap leaves. Flower stems grow right above the leaves and produce yellow. Regular watering and fertilization encourage abundant flowers throughout the summer after the spring blooming period is past.

 

Dies back in cold winters to a rhizome; between this and the roots Bicolor Iris spreads easily by itself. Appreciates pruning in the winter when the leaves lose their color or outright die back.
