 Planting Instructions

 When planting in your terrestrial garden, plant your Louisiana Iris shallowly--with about 1/4th of an inch of soil over the rhizome, pointed end up, roots down, in moist soil and full sun to part shade. Add some rich organic compost material to the soil. Water well when planting and when soil starts to dry out. Prefers an inch of water per week and does well at the edge of your pond, in stream beds or bog areas where it will receive moisture and plenty of sunlight. Mulch during the winter months with pine needles and/or straw to help keep soil moist and to prevent winter damage to rhizomes. Remove mulch in the spring.

Divide your Louisiana Iris in late summer to early fall.

When placing Louisiana Iris in the pond--your container should be at least 10 inches in diameter. Use heavy loam soil which is a mix of 2/3 top soil and 1/3 pool filter sand. Simply purchase a bag of topsoil at Lowe's or Home Depot and purchase Pool Filter Sand wherever pool supplies are sold. Mix 2/3 topsoil and 1/3 Pool Filter Sand to produce heavy loam soil. When placing your iris in the pond, skip the organic compost and fertilize instead with WaterlilyWorld Fertilizer . Allow up to 3 inches of water above the top of your container in the pond and place where your iris will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Spreads by rhizome division.

 Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs may be pressed into the soil of the containers when your Louisiana Iris are placed in shallow water in the pond.

An easy way to remember to fertilize your plants is to fertilize on the 1st of each month throughout the growing/blooming season.
