Cyclamint Louisiana Iris is a beautiful pond plant, this marvelous iris comes in scrumptious shades of rose-purple with yellow signals over the elegant, ruffled petals. Grows 2-3 feet tall and has green, sword-like foliage that stays nice all season long. Blooms in mid-May to mid-June, depending on zone.
Plant your iris in full sun and in moist soil. Dig holes a little larger than the iris rhizomes and add some compost to the holes. Cover the rhizomes with an inch or two of soil and keep the soil moist. (Or you may plant your iris in containers with heavy loam soil and placed in the pond with a few inches of water above the container). Louisiana iris are great pond plants for bog filters as well, where they help to remove the extra nutrients from the water before the water is cycled back to the pond.
Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates work well when Louisiana Bog Iris are planted in containers and placed in a pond. Simply press a few fertilizer tabbs into the soil, once a month for optimum growth, robust plant growth and best bloom.
