Flying Tiger Japanese Iris is a marginal deciduous perennial with a clumping habit.  The long light green sword-like foliage has a strong central rib and fans upwards.  Sturdy stalks grow from the center of the plant are topped with white flowers that earn a purple hue with purple veins and have a layered yellow and purple center from summer to fall, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
