Spec: Iris lacustris

Clarence mentioned a first bloom on a tiny Evansia species native
to the Great Lakes region Iris lacustris. Only about 2 inches tall.

I had just received the spring edition of the Michigan National Conservancy
bulletin and they had pictured a Iris lacustris native to the straits region
and referred to it as "the rare and endangered Dwarf lake iris, sometimes
blooming in white". They had just acquired 23 acres to add to their Grass
Bay Preserve near Cheyboygan which includes undeveloped Lake Huron Shoreline
which will protect the iris for generations to come.
