It's just purple though

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Iris germanica Paul Black:
It's my own fault. I know the description says purple, and I even asked customer service to verify the color of the blooms. I believed from the photo that it would be a deep, navy/midnight type of blue purple. And it was really just a true purple when it bloomed in my yard. Not a big deal, I love Iris in any color, I just would have planted it in a different spot if I had known it was not a blue purple. I was excited about adding it with some merchant marine blue Iris and some mango entrée orange/yellow iris for a particular combination. I planted these August 2016 following the instructions and giving them very little care after a few initial waterings. Spring 2017 they produced beautiful, healthy blooms. I'm sure it will continue to be more prolific each season.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
