Iris virginica is a beautiful native (to the eastern US) plant. It's
happiest in very moist soil, but if you water your garden you can grow
it there too.
Ryan Iuzzolino is a young nature photographer. I've seen
him at the local wetland learning about our Florida wildlife. He and Christopher Iuzzolino took
these two Iris photographs, and I'm delighted that they let me share
them here; thanks guys! They caught the flowers in great poses with
Wendy shared this photo of her Iris with me. Thanks Wendy! Um... the
next time you get seeds, could I have some to try getting these
established in my garden again? I didn't do so well with them the last
time you shared them with me.
