Common Name Giant Blue Iris Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Iris giganticaerulea
Description Truly the largest native Iris species in the southeastern US. It can grow to 4'- 5'high and is a very robust with large species with dark rich royal blue flowers. Endemic to Louisiana and its neighboring states hiding in the haunts of swamps and boyous. this species is frequently used by Iris hybridisers because of it's large size and intense color. To me this species is grand enough by itself and no tinkering with nature can improve the evolutionary choices mother earth has made. Not Known to be as cold hardy as other Iris species, but performs superbly for us in 7b. It is the crown jewel of all natives species.
