Clarence Mahan writes about a tiny Evansia species native
to the Great Lakes region Iris lacustris. Only about 2 inches tall.
I've gone through the few books I have and can find no photo or description
that really answers my questions.
Is this the same type of iris commonly called "Dwarf Crested"? The small
clump I have somewhere under all the snow has leaves taller than 2" (closer
to 4") and blue violet blooms about 1" to 1 1/4" across. Mine will
absolutely not tollerate sun and prefers a light covering of leaf mould.
I would appreciate any info on this.
18 degrees this morning, but we'll have sunshine.
Northeast WA near the ID border.
