Native to the wetlands of the southern U.S., Louisiana Iris are the ideal choice for water gardens, along the edge of streams or ponds, or in other moist areas. This beardless species is available in a range of colors, making it a favorite for many gardeners. Its green, strappy foliage looks attractive for several months. Although they originated in the Southeast, Louisiana Iris are adaptable to several climates and most are hardy to zone 4. Unlike bearded iris, they prefer moist conditions and usually do best with about an inch of water each week. Most Louisiana Iris bloom in early to midsummer and attract hummingbirds.
Planting Louisiana Irises
Louisiana Irises require normal to moist soil and benefit from a yearly gift of fertilizer. They are native to the southeastern part of the country and are best grown in full sun to part shade. In the past it was believed they would only grow well in acidic soil, but they do equally well under slightly basic conditions. Space approx. 24" apart. Hardy in zones 4-10.
