Butter and Sugar Iris
Butter and Sugar Iris is a delightful perennial plant. It has a very nice appearance, great for a variety of landscaping areas. Great near water features, as they appreciate well-watered conditions. Can be planted near Black Walnut trees, as they are not affected by them. Forms as a nice clump of foliage with flowers carried above. The leaves are long and narrow, with a nice medium green color throughout the growing season. Cream-white center petals, with golden yellow petals arching downward. The flowers bloom in the early summer, with possible rebloom later in the season. Very attractive to bees and hummingbirds!
