An award-winning iris awash in contrasting hues, Monsoon Moon Bearded Iris is reminiscent of a tropical sky before a heavy rain. Pale yellow standards lean nearly olive, with hints of purple toward the hearts, standing tall above pale olive-yellow falls – and both standards and falls are gorgeously ruffled. Lavender beards stand out in lovely contrast on the yellow petals. Along with its lovely flowers and high-textured shape, Monsoon Moon Iris features serious performance credentials. Monsoon Moon is a free-flowering variety, with 7 to 9 buds per stem. Iris germanica 'Monsoon Moon'
