Botanical Name Iris virginica
Description Iris virginica is an early blooming native iris that is most often found in wet areas. In (zone 7) it flowers in May. If used around ponds and water gardens this Iris can become quite tall and aggressive, but performs nicely in average garden conditions. The foliage can reach to 3-4' high arching outward with flowers that bloom just below the tip of foliage. Also take a look at var. N3 'The Hulk', which is a natural tetraploid = 4 times as many chromozones. 'The Hulk describes this selection very well. We also grow Var. 'Shervei', which appears as a slightly dwarfed natural form.
Notes
We are looking for a white or dark purple form.
