Description:
Not being a great fan of Iris there has to be something special to tempt me to collect one. Now this species has something about it, when I saw it growing on Dragon’s Tooth Mountain on limestone behind the town of Sapa in northern Vietnam. The stems were only attaining 60cm of height in the exposed conditions, whereas in shelter this species can attain 2m. With broad strap shaped evergreen glossy leaves topped by some magnificent blue and white orange spotted frilly looking flowers April-May. Best grown in a sheltered warm situation with some frost protection.
