Blooming from spring into summer, Louisiana Iris are attractive backdrops for your garden long after the flowers fade! The green sword-like foliage looks fantastic from spring until fall!

#ProPlantTips for Care:Louisiana Iris prefer to be planted in moist, well-drained soil in full sun but will tolerate some afternoon shade, especially in the hotter of their favored growing zones. Work a handful of bone meal or slow-release organic fertilizer below the roots. The planting depth of Iris bareroot is generally 3 to 5 inches deep and apart, keeping the pointed side up, backfilling with well-draining topsoil, and then watering in well until the ground freezes. You’ll see the bumps or shoots of next year’s leaves on one side, so be sure to plant with those facing up. The upper 1/3 of the rhizome should be exposed to sunlight.
When it gets cold, top with a layer of arborist mulch over the rhizome for winter insulation. In spring, pull back the mulch to expose the top one-third of the rhizome once again. Prune the foliage back as it gets old and deadhead after flowers fade.
