Walking Iris, Neomarica gracilis

Have enticing, fragrant light yellow blooms with dainty brown speckles in the center. Spreads (walks) by way of rhizomes and plantlets that develop on the stems where flowers once emerged. The weight of the growing plantlets pushes the stem to the ground allowing rooting of these new little plants. Can handle temperatures down to 20 degrees.
