Great White in Winter

Looking delightful in the garden today is Iris unguicularis ‘Great White’. The typical flower color is lavender, so this albino flower is one of the rarely seen color forms. This iris, native to Northern Africa (Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco), is growing in one of our alpine garden berms near the base of an agave. It certainly doesn’t needs these extreme conditions, thriving equally as well in most any fairly well-drained, part-sun/light shade position. Flowering will continue for at least another month or two.
