Fragrant Oversized Color in a Unique Pattern!

Unusual "streaming rays" effect!
There is no other Iris in the garden quite like Splatter Art! This "broken color" style bloom offers enormous -- 6 inches high and 6 inches wide! -- flowers of rich purple with streaming rays of white and a bright orange beard. When you're ready for a show-stopping cut-flower and garden standout, rely on this 2013 introduction.

Splatter Art blooms in midseason on tall, very sturdy 38-inch-tall plants. Each bloom is as wide as it is high, with huge ruffled petals. The standards (the top petals, which face straight upwards) are pure lilac-purple, while the falls (the lower petals) are a darker violet "broken" by beautiful pencil-thin rays of white. One side of each fall is darker than the other, a completely unique effect in the Iris family. The blooms are subtly fragrant, their scent carried gently on garden breezes. And all the petals are delightfully ruffled, which just adds to their appeal!

Like all Tall Beardeds, Splatter Art appears in late spring or early summer, depending on how far north you are and how sunny your weather is. It loves full sunshine everywhere but the deep South, and once established, it's quite drought tolerant. Deer and rabbits and other nibbling creatures leave it alone, and it's quite trouble-free, asking only to be divided into new plants every few years to keep the bloom strength up.

The Tall Beardeds make wonderful companions to Daylilies in the border, usually beating them into bloom by just a few weeks, and often overlapping delightfully. You will admire this lovely cultivar for many years to come! Zones 3-8.
