Flora! Illuminated… Day 9

Iris

Iris

Margaret Stones. Iris brevicaulis - “Zig-zag stemmed iris”, 1981. Reproduction of original watercolor.

In the spring a livelier iris
changes on the burnished dove;
In the spring a young man’s fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of love.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

One of our native irises, Iris brevicaulis, can thrive in your garden – if you have the right site. Learn more about this plant’s growing requirements in the Native Plants Database of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
