Comments: This is a relatively new iris from Brazil that produces clumps of silvery-gray foliage and bluish-purple flowers during the warm months of the year. It grows in full sunlight to partial shade and well drained soils. It does exceptionally well in large pots for placement at stragetic positions in the garden.
