Old Black Magic German Iris

You'll adore the contrast of purple petals so dark they're nearly black and yellow beards—it really makes this iris stand out. The blooms are small, but plentiful, each stem delivers around 8-12 buds. Like all German iris, deer tend not to bother this variety. It grows easily and quickly, ideal for the mixed border and naturalizing. It adds depth and sweet fragrance to a cut-flower arrangement. Iris Germanica 'Old Black Magic'
