Iris Virginica grows in ditches or wet woods by me  They seem to 
have no problem flowering in a cypress lake.  My I.Virginca in the 
garden I fertlize verry lightly in the fall with something like 
10-10-10 or Holland bulb booste, in the spring about 6 weeks 
before bloom I feed with a fertlllizer liquid with the middle 
number bigger.  If fertlilzed too much they just put out green 
growth.  Maybe some one who is a expert maybe able to tell you more.  
I have a problem with I. versicolor not blooming or growing they just 
sit there.  I think they require more water then I.Va.    I keep some 
in pots that are in pans of water and the I.Versicolor do well that
