Japanese irises

Ja­pa­ne­se iri­ses (ab­bre­via­tion: JI) re­qui­re a slightly acid soil and pre­sent so­me of the mo­st spec­ta­cu­lar flo­wers of all the iri­ses. Blooms are usual­ly hu­ge, ruf­fled and flat in form; so­me are mar­bled with gray or whi­te. They bloom about a month af­ter the tall bear­ded iri­ses. Ja­pa­ne­se hy­bri­di­zers ha­ve wor­ked with them for over 500 years.
