Plant Description

 ‘Black Gamecock’ is an outrageously vigorous Louisiana iris selection with huge 4-6” dark purple blooms on 2-3’ tall stems. If you want reliability, longevity, and beauty for a moist to wet, sunny spot, then this is the plant for you. The big, late spring to early summer flowers open flat displaying their regal, dark velvety color with narrow streaks of gold. Plant this along your pond edge or even in several inches of water along with rose mallow and horsetails, and watch out. Instant bank stabilization!
