Iris ‘Langport Wren’ is a tall bearded iris with gorgeous mahogany-purple flowers in late spring and early summer, above clumps of upright, grey-green leaves. The flowers have a slight chocolately scent, which adds to their appeal! Plant in a well-drained soil in full sun, with the tops of the rhizomes above the ground so that they can be baked by the sun in summer.
The flowers are purple or brown funnel/trumpet shaped. Foliage is strap-like and green – dark. This iris can grow up to 50cm in height and 45cm in spread after around 2-5 years. It is hardiness level h3 (-5c) and is best suited to well drained soil. Grows optimally under sun or partial shade.
