Beautifully variegated foliage marked with blue-green and cream when grown in shade and green and creamy yellow when grown in more sunlight make this evergreen African Iris a standout in the garden or in containers year round. The Variegated African Iris slowly multiplies and seems to be just as tough and durable as its solid green cousins enjoying well-drained soils and tolerating a variety of light conditions. The flowering stems produce white iris-like flowers marked with orange and purple. This unusual African Iris may also produce long runners along which it will produce young plantlets that will root into the ground or can be removed and transplanted once they reach about 6" high. Simply remove the runners if additional plants are not desirable.
