Dwarf Crested Iris Picture

A delightfully diminutive iris with big (up to 3") violet flowers (with golden 'crests' on the falls) in April and May, short sword-like foliage is only 6" tall, drought tolerant, good Rain garden plant, groundcover, enjoys rich acid soil, attracts hummingbirds and pollinating bees. I first saw this plant growing in the wild many years ago on a wooded hillside at a preserve in Wake county, NC and I have been enchanted by it ever since.
