Dwarf Crested Iris Plants 

Dwarf Crested Iris - is worthy of admiration due to its small stature and ability to bloom in the shade.

It is a low-growing perennial plant that spreads swiftly to form a mat of thin, sword-shaped, yellowish-green, pointed leaves approximately 5 to 6 inches in length. It features lilac, lavender, or light blue colored blooms with a white patch and an orange or yellow crest.

This species' bloom has six petals, with the three upright petals called the standards and the three dangling petals called the falls. These plants have thick and fleshy stems called rhizomes that grow under the surface. Its flowers are held by very short stems, which are sometimes almost stemless.

It is most commonly known as Dwarf Crested Iris or Lady's Calamus. It is a native plant to the eastern United States, and you can often find them in rocky, wooded slopes, bluffs, and streams. There are eight species in the genus Iris, and this plant is one. It may grow to be 6 to 9 feet tall and 6 to 12 feet wide.

When grown under favorable circumstances, it spreads swiftly to create dense colonies. Early spring is considered the best time to see this flower in bloom. This cultivar has a longer blooming period and blooms sooner than the average.

Organically rich, medium-moisture, well-drained soils are ideal for growing this variety. It tolerates full sun or part shade. Keeping the soil continually moist is essential if you plant it in full sun.

You may use them in front of a mixed perennial border, plant them in a rock garden, or let them grow naturally in a woodland garden. You can also make seasonal ground cover in partial shade areas.

This rhizomatous perennial plant is pollinated by native bees and attracted to hummingbirds. The rhizomes are creamy golden and thin with prominent root tips. Its strong roots grasp the soil and may bind the plant in position upon slopes or river banks.

There are several uses of this plant from which you may benefit. It identifies as a medicinal plant and can also treat liver problems. In addition, in its root lies a component that serves as a remedy to skin ulcers. The root is also used as a spice in certain cultures.

This plant offers various benefits, including attractive foliage, beautiful spring flowers, and erosion control. There is a lovely scent that fills the air with the aromas of their beautiful flowers.
