Moonlight Waves 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 flat three-parted white flowers with lime-green to soft yellow center splashes on the falls in late spring to early summer, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
