Iris sibirica 'Butter and Sugar'
Zoom In Photo:

Siberian irises are useful in that they bridge the gap between spring and summer flowering perennials while offering finely architectural foliage for the whole season. 'Butter and Sugar' is a popular pale yellow cultivar that provides a nice departure from the standard purples. Tidy architectural foliage all season. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
