1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

The fragrant, 4" wide flowers of this diminutive species Louisiana Iris sport purplish-blue, widely flaring sepals that are each heavily centered with creamy yellow on short zigzagging stems that hold flower buds at each turn. The Zigzag Louisiana Iris multiplies readily creating a loose ground cover that is choreographed with the changing seasons. It is at its peak in late spring when it is in flower and the foliage reaches its maximum of about 24" high. In late summer it begins to go dormant fading back to about 3-4 inches high from which it regrows all winter preparing for spring flowering. Excellent for naturalizing even in average moist soils. Item# 10877.
