Variegated Japanese Iris is a marginal deciduous perennial with a clumping habit.  The long variegated light green and cream sword-like foliage fan upwards.  Sturdy stalks that grow from the center of the plant are topped by dark violet flowers with a yellow layered center in summer, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
