Blue Flag Iris

Our beautiful native Blue Flag is found blooming in damp areas throughout the northeastern US during May and June. Unbearded lavender-blue to violet-purple flowers on 3' stems above upright sword-like leaves; developing seed pods add interest throughout the growing season. Perfect for wet sunny areas, it also adapts well to average garden soils. Dig and divide established plants in spring or fall to spread the beauty around.
