Description

As dark as the night sky, dreamy Iris chrysographes 'Just Around Midnight' brings on all the satiny lowlight charm you need if you love the alluring appeal of inky blooms. There’s no need to wait until midnight to enjoy these dusky tones - prepare to be swept off your feet by these twilight treasures all day long! Unfurling in late spring with the deepest of mauve-blue flowers which are broadcast at the top of tall, upright stems, they really make for quite a powerful look, especially when planted in gutsy groups!

Near-black flowers like these are great for making the other blooms in your garden appear extra zingy. But that’s not their only job, you can make a big feature of their mystique by planting them in blocks to make a contemporary and simplistic planting scheme. As your Iris 'Just Around Midnight' plants establish over the years, you’ll end up with even more stems – perfect if you like to cut a few to display in your home.
