One of the blackest flowers without Photoshop! Delicate looking narrow velvety flowers in early summer on slender stems to 50cm. Good, moist soil in part shade.

Happiest in the cooler, damper parts of the country Iris chrysographes will still grow in eastern and southern areas as long as it doesn't dry out, and it appreciates some shade from the hottest sun.

From damp meadows in China and Myanmar (Burma).
