This beautiful Louisiana iris grows to 36 inches tall in full sun to part shade, in evenly moist, acidic soil. A lovely addition to your terrestrial garden or bog area of your pond. For your terrestrial garden, plant in soil that has been amended with compost with an inch of soil above the rhizomes in full sun to part shade. Keep soil evenly moist and water well during dry spells. Mulch Louisiana iris in the fall, after the first frost to protect rhizomes from freeze damage and remove mulch in the spring. Divide rhizomes every 2 - 3 years or when necessary. Divide your lotus in late summer or early fall. When placing in the pond, may be planted in containers with holes, planting baskets or fabric planters and placed on shelves of the pond or used as a focal point, with a couple of inches of water above the rhizomes, in full sun to part shade.
