Louisiana (Water) Iris A-H

Louisiana (Water) Iris here in NSW, Australia

These are truly beautiful, evergreen water-loving plants.
They provide excellent cut flowers for vase or floral art and have a good bloom life.
Perfect for that problem weed zone and a great pond plant.
Looks fabulous all year and flowers generally during October.
Louisiana iris will flower on just receiving rain water, but flower stem lengths and plant heights are reduced when water is not regularly received by these beautiful iris.

Cultural notes are supplied with all plants purchased.

*Mystery Pack of Louisianas

Mystery Pack of Louisiana Water Iris

Name : Mystery Pack of Louisiana Water Iris

Occasionally here at KinSpirit we have Louisiana Water Iris that ‘escape’ the pot and go for a free-style swim in our ponds!

This means unfortunately, that they don’t take their labels with them, and we have no way of identifying them until they flower…

So we then have stock we can offer as a ‘Mystery Pack of Louisianas’ at a reduced price.

This would be perfect for those with ponds or wet areas that you’d like to flourish in colour, or even just a pot nearby that you can keep well-watered.

Price: $30 for 5 (+ post & handling)
