If you have an area of the garden that has a permanently moist soil, then you must grow the stunning Iris ensata 'Variegata'. Known as the variegated Japanese water iris, in early summer the combination of variegated grey-green and white leaves, and the rich, red-tinged-purple flowers, makes this a beautiful addition to the garden. And it is versatile, too. Plant it straight into the ground (where it will spread to form a generous clump of sword-shaped leaves), or pot it up (if you want to contain the clump and keep it compact). Or, you can even plant it into an aquatic basket for growing in the margins of a shallow pond!

Iris ensata 'Variegata' is so highly regarded by experts, that the Royal Horticultural Society has given it the coveted Award of Garden Merit. Reaching 50-100 cm in height, it is perfect for adding some vertical interest to your garden.
