(Neomarica gracilis)

Plantlets form at the end of the flower stalks, which then bend over allowing the new plants to take root and grow. Plants stay low, making this an excellent flowering groundcover for sun or shade. Excellent container plant in any zone. In cold climates keep inside in winter months. You will receive bare-root fans ready for planting.
