Description

Iris foetidissima

Also know as Stinking Gladwyn or Welsh Gladwyn. A wild perennial of rough places with coarse strap-like evergreen leaves, quite often ragged at the ends. In late spring the subtle flowers emerge, veined purple/blue/ beige and develop into fantastically bright orange berries held in almost woody capsules, over a long period through the winter.
It can grow into large clumps. Tolerant of all conditions including coastal  and dry shade which makes it really useful!

Sow in the spring.
