Lush and palmy with great fingery leaves that curve over in a bamboo like manner. No wonder it's sometimes called the Confused Iris. You could be forgiven for not recognizing it as an Iris until it flowers. Lots of little white Iris-like flowers in summer
Any reasonably good and well drained soil in sun or partial shade but do something about those slugs or they'll make a right mess of them. It can reach 2ft - more in the shade.

IF IT HAS AN AMBER TRAFFIC LIGHT
Hardy in the Home Counties if sensibly sited (avoiding severe frost pockets, for example). Many Amber Labelled Plants are from cuttings from well-established plants that have survived many harsh winters in the South-East.
This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.
Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.
General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
