**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)
