Southern Blue Flag Iris blooms various light purple/blues throughout the late spring and early summer. It can found in wet meadows or in moist savanna settings and is fairly drought tolerant. It can also tolerate moderate flooding which makes it a great plant for low garden areas like rain gardens. Iris virginica var. shrevei also can be installed front of eavestrough downspouts as natural splash blocks!
