  • Buy in a 1 litre basket (11cm/4" high)
  • Iris versicolor 'Mysterious Monique' - Rich dark red plum flowers with yellow markings and broad green leaves
  • Height 60 - 75cm (24" - 30") Flowers May - June
  • Plant in wet mud in a stream edge/bog garden or with up to 5cm (2") of water over the top of the basket in a sunny pond or container pond. Suitable for shelf 0 or shelf 1

Remove dead flower heads before seeds are formed as Iris versicolor 'Mysterious Monique' will not come true from seed and cut back foliage in Autumn. Divide Iris versicolor varieties every 3 years but will always remain shorter than Iris pseudacorus varieties. It will appreciate a mulch of humus rich material if it is planted on a streamside or bog garden or fertilizer tabs if in a pond.

Packaging and delivery was good, plants arrived in good condition. Two out of three were very small sized considering the price, containing only one small shoot each. Hoping they will grow ok now in the pond
