Iris tectorum Slippery Slope™

Iris - Chinese Roof

Slippery Slope™ Chinese Roof Iris was found in Sichuan by Darrell Probst (of Coreopsis and Epimedium fame). He introduced it because of its size and vigor, as well as the  beauty of its blue purple veined flowers.  The centers (signals) of the largest petals are white with dark purple veining.  The green leaf blades stay clean and attractive all summer, and Iris tectorum Slippery Slope™ expands to making  low growing attractive groundcover.  This  is an Iris that works well as a green roof plant.
