Silverband Japanese Iris is a marginal deciduous perennial with a clumping habit.  The long, sword-like light green foliage has a broad silver-cream band and fans upwards.  Sturdy stalks that grow from the center of the plant are topped by  three parted violet flowers with yellow centers in summer, attracting bees.  Grows best in rich, slightly acidic, moist to wet water-retentive soils.
