 Iris tectorum Variegata
Family: Iridaceae
Variegated Chinese Roof Iris
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticKeep soil moistBlue/lavender/purple flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This dwarf Iris is highly variegated and incredibly striking. It produces light lavender flowers in spring. The show starts with rich purple flowers, then about mid summer, the leaves become shiny and heavily cream variegated. Likes most soils, not too dry and grows in water.

This species is similar to Iris japonica variegata, which has well ruffled mostly white flowers, striking variegated leaves, likes moist soil in part shade and spreads vigorously as opposed to Iris tectorum variegata that has a better behaved growth habit.
