variegated leaf iris

peggy_hosta(z4 neSD)September 16, 2008

I'm not real familiar with irises so pardon my terminology. I toured a friends garden and she had an iris with a green and white striped leaf. What is it and where do I get them? Is it too late to plant there here in zone 4? (I don't care about the flower color- I like the variegated leaves ! What kind of sun do they need?

Iris pallida
Full sun would be best.
Search iris Pallida or Zebra iris.
May be to late in the season to purchase or plant.

Iris foetedissima has a lovely variegated form, but insignificant flowers. There is also an I. japonica with variegated leaves.
Cheers, Jan
