Plant Details: Slender Blue Iris

Slender Blue Iris
Slender Grass Iris
Well where do we start? This is the most slender and elegant of the tall native species in the eastern US. Very slender, even considered the most delicate species among all of our wonderful natives. This species matures to 3'High and can colonize to 3-5' wide at maturity. Our form from coastal Georgia is a periwinkle bluish color of the normal base species. Flowers measure 3.5" across. This sweet little Iris has a wide distribution form southern Georgia north throughout Maine. It colonizes slow but steady and can produce a colony 3-5' wide in just a few seasons. It loves moisture as all of our tall Iris species do. Even saturated soils are fine as it is commonly found in swampy and boggy habitats.
These are full gallons with an average of eight to twelve fans each. Some have five mature flowering fans. As always, quantities are limited on this species.
