Louisiana Irises – Rainbow Colours for Every Garden
From meadow gardens to bog gardens to semi-wooded gardens, these irises can be planted in swathes of one colour or in shades of a colour (blue to violet to lilac) or simply combine different colours for a cottage garden effect. Louisiana Irises have the greatest colour range of any iris group: white, blue, purple, violet, red, pink, orange, yellow, brown and many shades and combinations of these colours. Some varieties feature strong veining of a contrasting colour. They are versatile, hardy, fast growing, low maintenance and can grow in just about any kind of soil providing they receive well-rotted compost/manure from late winter to early spring.
