A fantastic collection of Iris Ensata in varying colours. Iris Ensata are easy plants to grow. They prefer acidic soils that are organically rich and remain moist at all times.They do not however like to be in an area which is waterlogged in the winter months as this will rot the plant roots. Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms if possible and plant roots so that the plant tip is 10cms below the soil surface. Grow in full sun or partial shade next to water if possible. Will grow up to 90cm (3 feet) tall and will spread 45-60cm (1.5 to 2 feet).
Tip: Spread out roots when planting.
Aspect: Semi shaded areas.
Soil type: Moist soils that are slightly acidic.
