I have a small Koi(or goldfish) pond 5' X 7'. It's man made, with a
plastic liner to hold the water. I discovered, to my amazement, that Gail
has some potted Iris in the shallow water aroung the edge. One is tagged
"Blue Flag Iris" - Iris Virginica X (blank), the other Iris Louisiana.
I doubt either are registered, and I will probably get rid of them, but it
brings up some interesting questions.
Is it possible to grow Louisiana's or Japanese in pots submerged in 3" to
12" or water. Is it important to have much dirt around them? I would
assume that I would have to divide them much more often than if they were
planted directly in the ground (bog).
