This is a short, grassy leaved Iris species, native to Siberia and Alaska. It forms a low tuft of bright green, sword-shaped leaves. Loads of small three-petalled flowers appear in late spring, lavender-blue with silvery-white veining. Very cold tolerant. A good choice for edging or in the sunny rock garden. Also effective when mass planted as a sort of groundcover. Prefers a soil that does not dry out. Easily divided in early autumn.
