Design Ideas Here is a yellow Iris that is simple to maintain and fits into virtually any garden, from prim perennial borders to low-maintenance parking lots! One of the best all-purpose plants for home landscapes, it stands up to heat, drought and neglect. Flank gateways with them, add to courtyards and entry gardens, or spot into larger foundation plantings, where the vertical reed-like foliage makes a great accent or contrast. A perfect plant to grow beside koy ponds, streambeds and fountains. Evokes the Mediterranean countryside when planted below or beside wall fountains. Or, evoke ancient Rome with this Iris in classical terra-cotta pots on pedestals or lined on steps. Grow as a low hedge around edges of porches and decks.
