White dalmatian iris is a perennial flower grown for its white and green striped leaves. Its long, linear leaves are vertically striped with cream colored bands.
In early summer, sturdy branched stems carry large, grape-scented, blue to purple flowers. White dalmatian iris is somewhat less vigorous than yellow dalmatian iris.
White variegated iris was planted in two different locations at the Xeriscape Garden in 2014. The upright habit and striped leaves are quite striking in the garden, making a good focal point.
Cut last year's leaves to ground level in spring. After bloom, trim flower stalk as far down as possible without damaging the leaves.
Divide every few years in August.
