Subs for I. pseduacorus


If you want to grow a pseudacorus like iris, the Clough family (Holden 
Clough, Roy Davidson and Holden's Child) are not very fertile and should 
be much easier to control that I. pseudacorus no matter how you pronounce 
it.  I grow Roy Davidson and love it.  It is the most vigorous iris I 
have.  I also have the "dwarf" form of I. pseudacorus. It doesn't seem to 
set seed on it's own either.  This may actualy be a hybrid like the 
Clough family.
If you want to get picky about using only natives, the native form of I. 
virginica in the interior US is I. virginica var. Shrevei.  The typical 
form is found on the East coast.  

My I. versicolors (Claret Cup and Cat Mousam and the hybrid Mountain 
Brook) were wonderful this year!  Cat Mousam is still blooming.  I grow 
these in regular garden soil and they do just fine.  Their foliage holds 
real well in our hot summers, better than both the Louisianas and the 
bearded iris.
