Iris versicolor

Iris versicolor
Common name blue flag
Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue (spring-summer)
Size 2-3'
Light sun
Cultural notes moist-wet soil
From seed self-seeds in our pond

We grow blue flag in our pond, in a LARGE pot. The foliage emerges by early spring, which is great at a time that most pond plants still play dead. Then we just wait until the display of deep blue flowers starts, usually by mid-May.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
