"Starfish Iris"

SIZE 1 (TOP SIZE)

Perfect for pots

Loved by pollinators

£9.50

Ferraria crispa is an unusual addition to UK gardens – but one that can grow, thrive, and be productive of many a double-take “What is that?” moments. Also known as the Starfish Iris, this South African plant isn’t just for lovers of the unusual for its own sake. The blooms are absolutely amazing! They’re all decked in black and white as if headed for a smart cocktail party or ball, and the petals are edged with ruffles that would make a clothing designer drool!

Give these Ferraria crispa a stand-out spot in your garden – raised rockeries in full sun are ideal – or plant them in six to eight-inch (15-20cm) pots for a fabulous table decoration when in bloom.
