Description

Peacock Iris

Moraea aristata

NOT FOR TAS, WA

  • White flowers with distinctive blue 'eyes'
  • Several flowers per stem
  • Naturalises easily

Strappy perennial growing to 35cm. Iris-like flowers with three white petals marked with distinctive iridescent blue 'nectar guides' or 'eyes' resembling peacock feathers. The 5cm wide flowers are freckled with violet on the reverse. Multiple flowers form on a single stem, with each flower opening for 3-4 days in succession over several weeks. Green strappy leaves emerge in late winter followed by flowers in spring; bulbs become dormant over summer.

Easy to grow and naturalises well if left undisturbed. Suited to growing in garden beds, borders and rockeries, as well as deep containers. Native to the Cape region of South Africa where it is critically endangered. Also known as 'Butterfly Iris'.
