Re: Iris verna, what is it?
I finally purchase a LA named DIXIE DEB...Good Choice, Great grower!!
> Does anyone have a description of this species (Iris verna)? This Species grows in the Appalachians, from Pennsylvania and Kentucky
to the costal dunes and southward to Georgia, also in the Ozarks of
Oklahoma and Missouri.
This is one of the few species demanding an acid soil. It flowers early
in deciduous woodlands before they leaf out. Bright lilac-blue flowers,
with orange markings in the falls. - Note most acid-loving irises need
water, but this one can grow with azaleas and other heath-family
subjects in open, sunny locations.
Hope that helps,
