Louisiana Iris - Baton Rouge Passalong
This iris resembles I. giganticaerulea but is considerably shorter (32") and much later blooming. It is found in yards all around Baton Rouge and probably elsewhere, but no one knows its precise identity. It closely resembles the East Coast species I. hexagona, which is no longer thought to occur naturally in Louisiana. It has an open species form, is a nice mid blue and a good grower.
