Iris Aureo Variegata
Few gardens would be complete without some representation of Iris. Grassy, sword-shaped leaves forming clumps. Most prefer a rich, well-drained soil with plenty of water during flowering. The flowers have six petals, three upright petals (called standards) and three hanging petals (called falls). A fuzzy line or beard runs down the middle of each fall.
