IRIS pallida 'Argentea Variegata'
Sweet Iris, Variegated Sweet Iris
Sweet Iris is an attractive, clump forming perennial with sword-like leaves of soft variegated foliage of gray-green with white striations. This Croatian native also boasts fragrant, lavender-blue flowers that appear in late spring to early summer. Like all bearded iris, these have three distinct upright petals (standards) and three distinct downward facing petals (falls) that have are lined with fuzzy "beards" at their bases. The beards are actually designed to draw in pollinators, particularly bees. Sweet iris prefers well-drained soil and full sun but can tolerate partial sun. This hardy plant is best suited to large, sunny perennial borders and cottage gardens.
