Emeralds TM Iris Plant Louisana Dark Velvet Purple Full Eclipse 4 Inch Pot


10 reward points

The Louisiana Iris is a part of the very large Iris or Iridacea Plant Family. The Louisiana Iris are a group of five species native to Louisiana Iris fulva, Iris brevicaulis, Iris hexagona, Iris giganticaerulea, and Iris nelsonii. Some of these species are also native to other Southern and Southeastern states, but Louisiana is the only area where all five can be found in their native habitats. These species will cross pollinate and interbreed with readily within the pool of the five, but not with other species. There are thousands of hybrids in an endless array of color combinations, some naturally occurring and others by the design of dedicated hobbyists and horticulturists who just love the plants. And there is plenty about them to love. They are easy to grow, span a wide range of climates, and while they prefer moist, boggy soils, and so make wonderful additions to ponds and aquatic designs, they can also be successfully grown on higher ground, or as potted plants. They are reasonably pest free. In warmer climates, they are primarily evergreen, and begin to look their best in the Fall and Winter when other plants are generally not at their peak. Their dormant period is mid summer, when it's generally too hot in the tropics and sub-tropics to be outdoors anyway. A good offset to this is to give them other summer bloom plants as bedfellows. . The Full Eclipse Louisiana Iris is a complex hybrid derived from the five indigenous species hybridized by Ben Hager and introduced in 1997. Large velvety royal purple (a shade of purple so deep it's nearly black) flowers with small golden yellow, black lined signal markings emerge from large, elongated, vertical, strap foliage averaging 2 to 3 feet in height, beginning in the mid to late spring to early summer. The deep, strikingly dramatic flowers are simply stunning mass planted bed or border.
