Genus: Patersonia

Patersonia fragilis is native to southeastern Australia, from southern Queensland to South Australia and in Tasmania. Common names are Day Iris and Short Purple-flag.

The flowers are deep purple and appear from spring to mid summer. While individual flowers are open for less than a day, many are produced from the one stem. All plants in the same area will flower at once and make an impressive display.

The plant prefers moist heathland and open woodland, and is regarded as an attractive plant for rockeries, water features, and bog gardens.

Please note that frames are not included.
