Happy Awakening Japanese Iris is a marginal deciduous perennial with long, sword-like dark green foliage that fans upwards.  Sturdy stalks that grow from the center of the plant are topped by large three parted violet flowers with yellow splashes on the falls in  late spring to early summer, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
