Iris japonica variegata

A pretty evergreen variegated Iris for sunny spots in not too cold gardens. It spreads slowly by its roots and will benefit from being cut down in the spring so you only look at fresh new leaves in the summer. It prefers acid soil but will tolerate slightly limey soil.

I suspect that the sort of spot this plant likes in the garden (hot and sunny) is – theoretically and fortunately – NOT the sort of place that slugs like but do keep an eye open for them.

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.
