bucharica - bicolor form
about 12" tall (30 cm) in flower, this bicolor form of
Iris bucharica is remarkable on account of the fragrant white and
yellow flowers. The foliage is noticeably glossy. The plant
shown here is growing in a mounded foundation shrub planting,
but the rhizomes were planted in an excavated hole 18" deep
x 16" wide, and filled with pure sand, and a tiny bit of humus
added. It seems easy to grow and dependable. I believe
this variety properly carries the cultivar name 'Princess'
