A beautiful cultivar with large purple flowers in summer. Ensata Irises need moist soil, but their rhizomes mustn't be covered with water, especially in the winter. They associate well with plants such as Astilbes and Rodgersias. They prefer acid soil - in alkaline areas they can be planted in ericaceous compost in containers sitting in an inch or so of water.
