Moraea aristata – Blue-Eyed Peacock Iris

White petals with a vivid blue eye in early summer, above rather thin grass-like foliage. It grows to about 40cm and the flowers only some 3-4cm across but the markings are exquisite.

This is an exquisite plant, almost extinct in the wild but so beautiful that is is surely safe in gardens around the world.
