Design Ideas: Blue is an elusive color among perennials and this Iris is a great reliable source. Plant in traditional flower beds for seasonal accent and blade-like foliage for vertical contrast. Use to simulate water Iris in dry streambeds or cluster around landscape boulders or rock outcroppings where soils are thin. Try as an attractive solution in damp spots. A natural around pools, ponds and water gardens. Even works well in the woodland garden or mixed into wild meadow grasses studded with wildflowers. When combined with contrasting foliage plants, may also be used as a blooming reed in antique ceramic pots and urns.

Easy and adaptable; thrives in enriched, neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Water regularly until well-established. Once established, water regularly from spring through bloom period; reduce frequency after bloom period. Remove faded foliage as new leaves emerge. Divide every 4 to 5 years in fall.

History

The iris flower is the inspiration for the French national symbol, the fleur-de-lis. The genus Iris was named after the mythical goddess of the rainbow due to the huge range of flower colors.
