A very pretty, super-hardy and easy-to-grow native flowering perennial, the Dwarf Crested Iris, Iris cristata, is adored for its abundant spring display of delicate, miniature irises with soft-blue petals. Each flower has golden-yellow and white accents. The flowers nearly cover the ground-hugging foliage that forms a solid carpet to only 6 to 8 inches tall spreading quickly to 12 inches or more. Though it will tolerate full sun with ample moisture, it is most happy and looks its best in a shady setting where it will be protected from direct afternoon sunlight. Perfect as an accent in small garden spaces or in groupings or as a low border in larger spaces. Get all the details below!
