A striking perennial plant from the iris family. When mature, Blue Sceptre grows in thick clumps with leaves up to 1.5m tall. Each clump produces 8 or more flowering stems in summer, with each stem containing hundreds of electric blue flowers, opening a few at a time. The flowering stems remain attractive in winter when dried out.
This is a half-hardy plant originating from the Western Cape in South Africa, needing protection from hard frosts. So best to lift and protect in the winter in the UK or grow in pots which can be moved.
Pack of 10 seeds. Sow in spring to autumn. Plants flower from the third season. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
