Yellow Walking Iris, Hand of God, Steyermark's Trimezia

Trimezia steyermarkii, (Neomarica longifolia is a common but incorrectly applied name for this species)

Yellow iris-like 2" flowers with brown markings are borne on tall stems practically all year where protected from frost.

As the 'walking' portion of the name implies, the Yellow Walking Iris produces young plantlets on the spent flowering stems and once they are large and heavy enough the supporting stem will be pulled to the ground where the young plantlets can root into the soil and grow. Makes an easy and low maintenance container plant for the porch or patio. Item# 758
