If you are thinking of Japanese iris, be aware that while they love wet when actively growing, their rhizomes should not be under water or ice during winter dormancy.

I'm sure it is a drainage problem, but what is the difference between wet
and poor drainage? And any other plant suggestions would be appreciated.
This spot used to have pea gravel covering the whole thing (now I think I
know why!) There is a concrete mow strip around it and I have run into some
rock/concrete chunks buried in it too (these have been unremovable due to
size and proximity to the sidewalk and a brick raised bed. So.... still
need a plan. None of the "cheap" nurseries in the area had japanese iris-
so I will hunk more tomorrow. There used to be an Iris grower around here-=
not sure if they still exist though.
