Iris schelkownikowii

Iris schelkownikowii

It seems to prefer hot, dry climate. Curiously it keeps its leaves for most of the summer season without being watered.
The large, almost sessile flowers have bluish standards and a reddish/purple blotch and veins. Beard is yellow.
Forms rapidly small clumps but should be divided every second year in order to produce more flowers.
