Another of Todd's favourite Iris varieties, one that we often use at the Chelsea Flower Show. Very dark plum velvet falls with slightly contrasting upright violet standards. 'Black Swan' has a distinct ginger beard making it different from Iris 'Deep Black'. Tall and elegant to a height of 90cm.
Plant Iris in full sun and a well drained soil, face the rhizomes south and plant just above the soil surface.Lift and divide the Iris clump every 4 years. Give a spring feed with a balanced fertiliser, we use Loo's Poo alpaca fertiliser.
