One of our pacific coast hybrid creations. Yellow flowers with purple veining. A bright contrast in shady areas. An excellent and durable grower. Approx. 1′ tall with 4-1/2″ flowers. Spring bloomer. Like other pacific coast irises you water about 1x/week from late fall through spring – and not if it rains. In summer cut the watering frequency to 1 to 2x per month or they will rot.

Because of the purple veining against the yellow wash it was so named ‘Golden Honeycomb’ by one our exceptional nursery Facebook friends, Mike Moessl.
