Small, violet-blue flowers are born atop narrow, grass-like stems. This member of the iris family spreads from rhizomes, and will form small colonies over time. It makes a great border plant planted in light shade up to full sun. Plants will flower more in full sun. Plants can be easily divided every 3-4 years by teasing apart fans from the larger clump. Foliage is typically evergreen in our mild winters.
