An interesting and not commonly grown Iris that had some ‘name adventures’, back and forth from Pardanthopsis. It has blue-violet flowers with brownish markings on the petals and sword shaped leaves.
Very floriferous; the flowers open at the same time in the evening every day, hence the common name. An added quality is that it flowers later in the season, July to August.
Germination: easy, sown in the spring; it may flower the first year.
