This looks strikingly similar to the striped water iris I moved from the drainage pond up to the new stepstone path, but apparently differs in that it won’t tolerate standing water. Which is good since this is an obviously drier area than a pond. I’m hoping it will outperform the water iris in the area which seem to be lacking in vigor, perhaps because they were buried too deep after the retaining wall was built.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
