Iris
 

The native Iris in this group, with the exception of I. setosa, all have grass-like, strap shaped leaves and prefer to be moist in winter and spring (not wet) and drier in summer. They typically grow in open to woodland sites. Iris setosa, like the introduced Iris pseudoacorus, prefers a moister location in the summer. We also offer a large eclectic group of Iris so you can select something for any special spot in the garden.
