Tall Bearded Iris 'Grape Expectations'. Height 36"-48"/90cm-1.20m. Like all Bearded Irises, it likes a position in full sun with well-drained soil. It flowers mid-season.

Purple Iris - Drought tolerant. Blooms in spring; green strappy leaves look decent through fall. Will die back in winter without any need to prune. Spreads by clumping. Can be lifted and divided every 5 years or so. ❤️
