Iris x pseudata 'Shiryukyo'

Pseudata Iris

A mid-to-late spring bloomer that is great for bringing royal purple hues and verticality to the rain garden! Iris x pseudata ‘Shiryukyo’ is a sterile hybrid Japanese Iris, crossed between Iris ensata and Iris pseudacorus, resulting in the ‘Shiryukyo’ Pseudata Iris. ‘Shiryukyo’ translates to mean “Purple Dragon’s Valley”, which we feel is a pretty good indicator of the striking display this plant produces each June. Magnificent, gigantic purple flowers with bright yellow central signals and dark purple veins give the garden an almost tropical feel, with their exotic, orchid-like appearance. Considered to be a rather prolific bloomer, this particular selection does not become aggressive, and will behave itself in boggy, wet areas, or even average soil conditions. Iris pseudata ‘Shiryukyo’ was awarded an Honorable Mention in 2011 by the American Iris Society.
