Dwarf Crested Iris, Iris Cristata is an Herbaceous Perennial

The dwarf crested iris is an herbaceous perennial that is hardy in Zones 3-9. It prefers full sun to partial shade and reaches a height of about eight inches. This iris requires loamy, moist soil. It spreads vigorously, making an excellent ground cover. The blooms range from light blue to lavender on short stems with green sword-like, deer-resistant leaves. It grows to be anywhere from six to ten inches tall. The flowers on this plant will appear from early spring to the hot part of the summer. This flower will need moist soil conditions and full sunlight to reach its potential. You can purchase this herb in various colors to suit your needs, and they look outstanding when several are in bloom.

 Dwarf Crested Iris, Iris Cristata makes an Excellent Ground Cover addition to Gardens and other Areas

They are much smaller than the regular iris flower but still packs a lot of punch when it comes to color. The colors of these tiny flowers are stunning as they bloom. They supply a gorgeous purple or lavender color and brighten all garden areas up. These plants do great when planted in climate zones four through eight and are also called Iris Cristata. They usually bloom from April through June. These plants are quickly grown and do not take any special care. They have long slender green leaves, and once the flower blooms and dies out, you can trim the leaves and stems back to get ready to grow and bloom the following spring season. They grow to become very thick and can be divided, and you can plant extra ones in other gardens on a lawn. These are great additions to gardens and other areas.
