SHADE OR MORNING SUN / AVERAGE TO DRY SOIL / 1 GALLONS COMING IN APRIL

This is a pass-along Iris from Atlanta's Druid Hills neighborhood that has bigger, bluer and more flowers than the typical Iris japonica. This is a vigorous and rapidly ground smothering plant and is good on steep shady banks , under surface rooted trees or under high branched shrubs. The foliage is lush and strappy and glossy and very pretty and the flowers come in late spring. Be warned that this plant needs grubbing out every 3 years or so (unless we have a very cold winter and it dies to the ground) and allowed to regrow or the foliage gets tattered and looks like crap. Its worth it though.
