| Zoom In Photo:
Black is still the new Black! At least in the gardening world. This is said to be the darkest iris available -- the purple is so deep, it's black. Wow! It's also fragrant. Divide every two to three years just after blooming. Trim the foliage back to a third and plant the rhizomes at or just below soil level.
Dry rocky places.
