Rose Queen - Ensata
Iris Ensata 97cm.
Flowering during May, June and July in the UK.
Large delicate pink blooms with darker pink veining on the falls. Yellow signals.
The tall flower stems look fabulous above the long strap-like foliage, and make superb cut flowers.
Iris ensata plants are not suitable for standing permanently in water, they require moist but open soil conditions and will rot if left standing in water over winter, so plant at the margins of ponds or streams, or in perennial borders.
Introduced by the Society for Japanese Irises in 1989 from unknown parentage. Originally introduced in 1915 under the erroneous name "I laevigata Rose Queen".
