Apostle's Iris

Neomarica gracilis


From the Iris family comes this Neomarica with sword shaped leaves and fragrant flowers. The delicate flowers last only a day but the plant continues to form new blooms for long periods of time during late spring months. Makes also an excellent houseplant.

Had this plant in garden for years knowing nothing about it. I thought it would be an Orchid because of its appearance. Thank you for help dandoucette.

This isn't an orchid, it's a Walking Iris, sorry for the spelling mistake.
