Variegated Japanese Iris

Iris ensata 'Variegata'

Variegated Japanese Iris looks strikingly similar to the Striped Water Iris I moved from the drainage pond to the new stepstone path. However, it differs in that it won’t tolerate standing water, which is good since this is a drier area than a pond. I’m hoping it will outperform the water iris in the area, which seem to be lacking in vigor, perhaps because they were buried too deep after the retaining wall was built.
