Take a walk on the dark side with Iris germanica ‘Black Lipstick’ (Bearded Iris). A dramatic, multi-award winner, ‘Black Lipstick’ will flower with the darkest of purple standards held by ruffled black falls. Dark blue beards add mystery. Flowering in the early-to-mid-summer garden, it provides a head-turning contrast to the traditional soft colors or spring. Stunning in waterwise gardens, it is low-maintenance, deer resistant, and beautiful in cut flower arrangements too.
