Clump growing South African plant

 

Full description:

A South African iris also known as a Butterfly Iris it is very similar to Dietes grandiflora except that it is slightly shorter and perhaps the flower colour is slightly more white.

Very hardy landscaping plant that is drought resistant but does best in a sunny to partly shaded position in moist, well drained soil.

It grows in a clump of stiff, narrow, dark green leaves and is good for growing under trees, in rockeries and near water features.

In spring and summer, it produces flowering stems carrying iris-like, white flowers. The dead stems should be cut off
