'Porcelain Maiden' is a selection in Eric Hammond collection of Iris japonica, commonly known as Japanese Evergreen Iris or Fringed Iris. As with all Iris japonica, this one is very vigorous, spreading to form a patch of sword-like arching green leaves that expands by at least a foot in width each year. In spring, 2 foot tall stems rising above the foliage display beautiful, soft orchid-white flowers with lavender and yellow markings on every other petal. This one prefers shade to part shade so is excellent as a border in woodland gardens or along paths. Can also be grown in pots and planters for situating on patios, decks, porches or other outdoors living spaces where the flowers can be enjoyed from close up. Get all the details below!
