In Love with Japanese Irises
Japanese iris characteristics
You can tell a Japanese iris from the other members of the iris family by its narrow, sword-shape leaves, which can stretch 3-4 feet, and by its pointed flower bud. The delicate falls (petals) of a Japanese iris come in hues of purple, white, blue, pink and red-violet, and flap open 6-8 inches wide.
