    Neomarica caerulea ‘Regina’, commonly called the Giant Apostles’ Iris, originates from Brazil. ‘Regina’ is a exciting, wide-leafed iris that has lovely 3-4 inch wide purple-blue flowers accented by strikingly brilliant jade foliage, which assumes a more clumping and upright habit than the more common walking iris. Although it is considered a walking iris, it only seems to do so when under extreme stress.

    The purple blooms of the iris are rippled with glowing white, splashes of mauve and yellow offering refreshing color and texture. It’s a repeat bloomer, producing flushes of flowers in succession, many on the same stalks from February through August, depending upon the size of the clumps. The Giant Apostles’ Iris flowers have a light fragrance.

    The plant thrives in full sun to partial shade, it requires virtually no care and always looks great (even without blooms). It is very drought and salt tolerant. ‘Regina’ tolerates temperatures as low as 20°F.

    Plants offered are 1" plugs, with a single fan ranging anywhere from 6" to 12" tall (see ruler in photo). I acquired these for use in my landscaping flower beds, but they make great potted plants, too.

    How much is a plug and how many do you have to sell?
