Katrina African Iris

The Katrina African Iris is a perennial with exotic white flowers with yellow-orange markings which appear continuously in quick succession on tall stalks. This superior selection has increased tolerance to heavy, poorly drained soil and hot, humid environments. Louisiana nurseryman Peter Perrino selected this plant for its landscape durability and its refined appearance. In Southern regions, this variety is resistant to root and crown disease, unlike the species. It will not set seedpods, resulting in a prolonged bloom period. Improved foliage is a brighter green with wider and longer leaf blades.
