Bog Plants - Water Iris

Irises are among the most favored of the bog plants. Their foliage is attractive and is good as a backdrop or as an adjunct to the other plants in the bog. Their flowers have an obvious appeal, being among the most exotic flowers in the hobby. They are useful as filtering agents in ponds and can be grown in any moist area.

Louisiana Iris can be planted along the ponds edge or directly in the water itself. They should be planted in shallow water, preferably in a container that is wider than it is deep, i.e., a kitty litter tray. In this way, the plant can spread as it wants to and is not as likely to overgrow the pot as it would be if it were planted in a tall, narrow container.

Iris pseudacorus, on the other hand, does just fine if started out in normal pot. It will quickly overgrow the pot and will act as a very effective filter if the water is made to flow through the extensive root system that develops. All of the water Irises do best if cut back and thinned out every two years, or so, and if the dead leaves are not allowed to accumulate.

IWI Iris kimballii

A robust plant which produces large numbers of small, lavender flowers. Will tolerate shade and, oddly enough, some salt in the water. We collected our first specimen many years ago in a pile of clam shells in Apalachicola, Florida in brine. A lovely addition to any water garden, it grows up to 3 feet high and blooms in late spring.

One of the more robust Iris. Thick, freely branching rootstock gives rise to fans of tall, thick leaves and, in the spring, tall spikes of bright yellow flowers. The plant grows up to 5 feet tall, with the flowers on stalks up to 6 feet high.**Restrictions: Sorry, but we can't ship this item to Vermont.**

IWI Louisiana Iris 'Black Gamecock'

Among the best of the Louisiana Irises. Plants quickly form large colonies in shallow water. Plants grow to about 18 inches tall with the flowers being held slightly higher. A very prolific bloomer once established, this iris produces deep purple flowers, almost black, with a rich, velvety texture. A great bang for your buck plant.

A terrific bright blue iris. A very prolific bloomers and, in fact, in some areas, a rebloomer. Here in San Diego, near the coast, they frequently bloom in December. The plants grow to 2 feet tall, with the flowers held slightly above that. One of the more rugged of the Louisiana Iris varieties.
