  • Notes

This native iris will grow 1-3' tall and has large, dark green leaves with lavender/blue flowers that bloom in fall and sometimes in winter. It is drought tolerant.
Dig hole, insert plant slightly higher than soil grade. Disturb root ball very little. No amendments, just native soil. No fertilizers. Backfill the hole .Water lavishly. Mulch top of soil around plant in a 4' diameter circle. - Bert Wilson Las Pilitas
