The Louisiana Iris is a part of the very large Iris or Iridacea Plant Family. They are a group of five species native to Louisiana . 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.
