(Iris-Japanese) Iris ensata ‘Lion King’ has an impressive stature and awesome blooms forming a very regal display for your moist garden areas. ‘Lion King’ grows to 4' tall with huge, fully double, 7-8" blooms that open in early summer. Each ruffled petal displays a grape purple edge that wisps softly into the pure white centers and tucked down at the base of each petal is a tiny splash of sunshine yellow. Japanese irises are the latest to bloom, about a month after the Siberian irises.
