Moraea aristata - peacock iris

APPEARANCE : & Tall growing bulb plant with strap-like leaves and white flowers with dramatic purple-blue spots. Flowers are individually short-lived but plants continue blooming for a long season.
USE IN: Plant in rockeries, through perennial grasses, or group in pots for bright spring flowering colour.
CLIMATE: Frost-free, sub-tropical to semi-arid

PLANTING: Moraea grow in sandy or clay soils, add well composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Plant in a sunny spot for best flowering.Tolerates dry periods once established.
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the first flowers appear. Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year. When the bulbs die back completely remove spent foliage and leave in place for next season. Bulbs need a dry summer rest.
