The enthralling beauty of this Iris adds a little mystique to the garden. The deeply coloured petals are deepest purple velvet, with a touch of gold on the falls. The flowers are suitable for picking with a similar shelf life to Dutch Iris. It has a slight fragrance.

The evergreen leaves are elegant, lance like and mid green. It is fairly upright and not as tall as the narrow flower stems.

The Black Iris is a rare variety that was discovered in China in 1911. This plant holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its durability and reliability.

Plant in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Keep The Black Iris (Iris chrysographes) moist over summer. Suitable for growing beside ponds and in boggy soils, wet clay included. In gardens, they become more dry tolerant as they establish.
