Japanese water irises are best grown in shallow water round the edge of a sunny pond, but also thrive in a bog garden or very wet border - in slightly drier conditions you can achieve a similar effect using Iris sibirica varieties. Most forms look superb while in flower but rather uninteresting after that by growing 'Variegata' the striped foliage provides a much longer season of interest that looks good with a wide range of pondside and bog garden plants. Plant with mimulus, astilbe and hostas in very damp soil or with golden club Orontium in shallow water. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
