Wild Thyme - Iris 'Louisiana Black Gamecock' - Water Iris
Sublime when planted in drifts at the edges of a pond, this elegant iris has larger than average (up to 10cm across) flowers, in a deep shade of sumptuous purple-black with a bright yellow flash in the centre of each fall.
They need reliably moist soil, so they also make an excellent choice for bog gardens.
Their flowers are mainly produced in late spring and early summer although they may have a second, smaller flush in autumn.
