With a second-to-none flowering habit, Speed Limit blooms on tall, 38" stems, not once, but twice each year! Its large, Mid-to-late season flowers have sweetly ruffled standards and falls. The prominent white spot at the center of each fall showcases the otherwise invisible blue veining. Pair with white varieties for a chic display. Excellent cut flower. Iris germanica 'Speed Limit'
