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.
Louisiana is the only area where all five can be found in their native habitats. These species will cross pollinate and interbreed 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.
Cyclamint is hybrid cross from Ann Chowning X Jazz Ballet, developed by Heather Pryor and registered in 1995. The large purple toned fuchsia pink flowers are lush and elegant in light and dark tones of fuchsia, purple and soft mauve, with a mint green heart fading into bright yellow striated signals on all petals giving a star effect. Blooming season is March to May.
