(JI) Japanese Iris

(JI) Diomedes

Japanese iris require a slightly acid soil and present some of the most spectacular flowers of all the irises. Blooms are usually huge, ruffled and flat in form; some are marbled with gray or white. They bloom about a month after the TBs. Japanese hybridizers have worked with them for over 500 years. They compete for the Payne Medal.

Example: Diomedes
