About This Species
Grow me instead of Yellow Flag Iris
Blue flag iris is a herbaceous perennial wetland species popular for its pale violet-blue flowers with yellow centres. It grows 30 – 90 cm tall and has grassy green foliage. Blue flag iris is a good choice for wet and moist garden sites as it prefers acidic, boggy soils to thrive.
When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
