LGS Notes: Blue flag iris is a nice option for very wet soil or rain gardens. Irises are a great spring bloomer and are very low maintenance. Group them with other plantings for early spring or summer because they are gorgeous when they bloom but bloom time moves on quickly. Their leaves are nice for texture and color and they will tolerate some shade. These plants are actually deer resistant!
