Iris domestica 'Orange Dream' is an exotic and unusual perennial that's a member of the Iris family and well worth its place in any mixed border. Rarely offered for sale in the UK, now is your chance to make this beauty your own!
This easy to grow leopard lily bears a succession of bright orange, spotted flowers on tall spikes from early to mid-summer, making them ideal as cut flowers in a favourite vase. The leopard spotted flowers emerge from a clump of sword-like leaves which grow in an attractive fan shape, making the whole plant a visual feast!
The striking blooms fade to reveal shiny black, ornamental seed heads (which give this plant its common name of blackberry lily) - these make gorgeous additions to a dried flower arrangement.
Plants quickly establish to form healthy clumps, which can be divided in autumn or spring to enhance your borders. Generally trouble-free, this variety is particularly resistant to disease and pests and it really is a great plant to get beginners started with gardening.
Delivered as a 12cm potted plant in a decorative cup, which can be planted out straight away - or even kept inside for a few weeks as a decorative houseplant before going outside.
