Native, Iris prismatica, is found growing in bogs and marshes. The narrow upright foliage forms rhizomatous clumps topped with narrow-petaled flowers in early May. Lovely violet-blue flowers with falls, (the petals that don't stand upright) display a nice central white pattern. Iris prismatica is an easy-to-grow, deer-resistant and hummingbird friendly native that should be in all gardens where moisture is adequate.
