If you are looking for a star plant for a consistently wet area this Louisiana Iris is a great choice. A nativar that is at home in swampy or boggy areas, this iris makes a great plant for a rain garden or a low lying area that doesn’t regularly dry out. In late-spring you’ll be rewarded with huge 4-6” blooms that flatten out to reveal deep regal purple centers and a thin gold signal on each petal. 

Best grown in shallow water up to 4 inches deep or boggy soil Louisiana Irises need water to survive. They can be grown in a garden, but must have consistently moist soil that should not be allowed to dry out. They require acidic conditions and will grow less vigorously in soils with a high PH. Wood mulch will help maintain soil moisture and undisturbed wood mulch will also increase the PH. A soil test is recommended to see if you have suitably acidic soil.
