Louisiana iris : FOTD

National Iris Day

Louisiana iris is a taxonomic group of five iris species native to Louisiana and surrounding regions of the southeastern United States: Iris fulva, Iris hexagona, Iris brevicaulis, Iris giganticaerulea, and Iris nelsonii.

Louisiana Iris grow naturally in heavy clay soils, adding compost or peat during planting will help retain moisture and provide nutrients, this is particularly important in sandy soils. For best blooms, plant in full sun (will also grow in partial shade) in slightly acidic soil.

My Birthday card: inspired by my picture.

Thanks for stopping bye this Saturday. Lisa
