RE: Iris lacustris

I'm sending a photo of Iris lacustris. This is a crested iris that is native
to Michigan and to southern Ontario, Canada. It is related to Iris cristata.
It has flowers about 3/4-1" across and the stalk is about 3-4" tall. It grows
close to the shores of the Great Lakes where there is moisture in the air yet
needs to be in well drained soil, seemingly prefers sand but I have seen it in
loam. It is always found in shaded or semi-shaded areas. Around Georgian Bay
in Ontario it blooms the end of May. It is found in large patches. I have seen
patches about 5' across and about 50' in length. The rhizomes are very tiny.
About 1/16" with enlarged nodules about 1/8". The foliage dies out in winter
so that all you have is the very tiny roots.
