Iris verna is a slender, fan-like cluster of 8-12 inch leaves that puts forth a delicate flower stalk topped with an eye-catching bloom. Flowers are deep lavender with three very prominent much larger petals that are blue to violet with a distinctive yellow-orange splash of color in it’s throat. Will create a colony of plants by means of creeping rhizomes. This plant thrives in well-drained, moist soil in part shade. In the forest, these plants are often found on slopes and banks where leaves will not collect on their crowns. Keeping leaf litter off of the plant crown will help to prevent smothering and decay.
