Water Iris, for pond or garden...organically grown..
'Monstrosa' - This iris can be grown in a pond, a wet spot in your
yard or in your flower garden if you give it at least an inch of water a
week. It's rare form and beauty, which I first saw in Dr. Kohlein's
book, and in 1988 finally tracked it down from an iris breeder in
Oregon, will accent any garden setting. Sturdy flower scapes grow
20 inches plus.  The indigo ink spotting on each white fall is a unique
accent in water iris.  Zone 4.      
'Laevigata' -  Another Japanese creation, Laevigata is in style with the 'brush mark'
of white running down each fall. When in bloom the cloud of flowers sways in the
breeze giving animated excitement to your garden. Taken from the swamp and bred for
centuries, this iris is suitable for having it's feet in water or in a well watered spot in
your garden. The subtle cobalt blue flowers stand a-top 30 inch stalks which bloom
mid-season.  Zone 4.

For those of you lucky enough to have a pond, most of these beauties can be planted directly in the
water. I had large stands of 'Monstrosa" planted in the water at our lakes' edge in Connecticut for years. The
'pin-wheel' display was always a welcome treat. Water iris are at home in normal garden soil also, provided they
receive ample water. They like rich acid soil and full sun. Flowering generally begins in early to mid June and can
last for a month or more depending on the size of your plantings. The original European native water iris,
known as 'yellow flag' was the model for the French fleur-de-lis. Dependable strong growers, this
collection of water iris are sure to add years of enjoyment to your water feature or garden.
