'Lion King' is a breathtaking Japanese Iris with extremely large, fully doubled white petals with a wide flurry of purple on the edges. The huge flowers with their picotee edging nearly obscure a hidden splash of golden yellow on the signal, deep in the center of the bloom. Flowering in mid June and into early July, this easy to grow plant will thrive in full sun looking absolutely regal in the middle or toward the back of a garden. 'Lion King' will look spectacular in a group especially near a pond or stream bank where you can see the beautiful reflection of its bloom in the water. And don't worry about 'Lion King' not liking the wet condition in this location...it grows happily in wet areas without missing a beat. Long, sword-like leaves are deep green and stiflly upright giving each clump a tidy, clean look in the garden throughout the growing season.
