Iris verna is one of my very favorite spring wildflowers. I so
look forward to the bright, bold yet delicate three dimensional blooms
held tightly against the plant. The vivid colors stand out from a great
distance and draw you ever closer. Being a very vigorous clump forming,
long lived perennial, you never have to fret about it becoming a nuisance
in the garden.
The native range of Iris verna encompasses 17 eastern states -

for folks all over the US and Canada.
Standing about 6" - 10" tall, at maturity Iris verna
will form an approximately 12" plant. What a useful plant at the
front of a border, along a walkway or as a stand alone statement in a bed
of its own in the wild or formal garden!
I've grown this easy Iris in full sun to deep shade and performance is
equal in each location, although in the wild, it prefers light shade to
dappled sunlight. Moisture requirements are average to moist.
OH, I forgot to mention a very important point!!! Iris verna is
100 % deerproof.
I've been building a good stock of plants to share with you and now is a
good time to plant them.

antifungal, antiviral and a very useful material.
