Description

 Iris Prismatica

 

The Iris Prismatica, also known as the Cube seed Iris or Slender Blue Flag, is a perennial herb native to parts of Canada and the United States. Within the US it is particularly prevalent in the states of Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and several others stretching down towards Alabama. In Canada, it can be found in the provinces of Nova Scotia and Ontario.

The primary way that Iris Prismatica spreads its lineage is through thick rhizomes that develop close the soil's rich surface. This rhizomes typically form in large clusters that can reach a diameter of between 6 inches or 15 centimeters to 2 feet or 60 centimeters.

A Detailed Look at Iris Prismatica

The Iris Prismatica develops flowering stalks that usually reach heights of 2.6 feet or 80 centimeters. The leaves are incredibly long and very narrow, typically reaching lengths of 2 feet or 60 centimeters, while usually not exceeding 5 millimeters in total width. The flower has two separate blooms during May, with flower petals typically taking on a bluish violet or pale blue color.

The Growing Conditions For Iris Prismatica

Iris Prismatica tends to grow nicely in very wet conditions, such as in swamps, wetlands, or marshes. The flower is known to accumulate in slightly dryer locations; however, the overall size of the bulb tends to be substantially smaller, and it takes on somewhat stunted characteristics.

Advantages to Growing Iris Prismatica in a Garden

The Iris Prismatica possesses some interesting attributes that make it an ideal flower for any outdoor garden. The primary advantages to growing the iris are that it's completely deer-resistant, hummingbird and bee friendly, and it's effortless to plant and maintain. If you plant just two to three of these flowers in moist soil with adequate drainage, you can expect a medium size 3-4-foot diameter patch of them in about five years time, as the iris is quite prolific.
