Red Velvet Elvis is a stunning plant with bright crimson flowers held above the handsome green, sword-like foliage. Grows to 3' tall, and blooms in mid-May or Mid-June, depending on zone. A splendid addition to your water garden or bog area of your pond or containers in your pond! Works well in a bog filter, where Louisiana Iris can help to remove nutrients from the water and held avoid algae issues.
Plant in moist soil with a lot of composted organic material , digging the holes a little larger than the rhizomes and cover them with an inch or two of soil. Plant in full to part sun and make sure soil is kept moist during dry spells. Louisiana iris may also be planted in containers or bog areas or with water over the rhizomes in containers, in your pond. Iris need to be divided occasionally. (In exceptionally harsh sunny locations, partial shade is preferred)
Fertilize the Louisiana iris in containers in your pond with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for robust growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the pond tabbs into the soil around the rhizomes, do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September.
