Lion King 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 huge, fully double three-parted grape purple edged flowers broad with white centers and yellow splashes on the falls in early summer, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
