Iris cristata     Iris, Dwarf Crested     Zone: 3-9    (if moist) 

Iris cristataIris cristata is happiest in moist woodland. Eventually makes a gorgeous groundcover but doesn't romp all over its neighbors. A tough, accommodating, little plant that needs division every few years to maintain the mass of flowers for which it is known. Fragrant & beautiful. So drought tolerant in shade that it will live happily under a Maple tree!   Benefits from the addition of lime and rich, organic materials.

Soil: Humusy but well-drained    H: 4-6"  W: Slowly indef.        B/M: Purple/ 3-4

Iris pseudacorus               Yellow Flag                Zone: 4-9             

Iris pseudacorusYellow iris is excellent for borders & massing. It's 'Unlike Anything Else' yellow flowers are one of the first arrivals of spring. No hype -- truly SPECTACULAR. It is a vigorous grower, especially in a wet spot or even a pond. A strong grower in average soil. The easiest of all Iris to grow -- nothing bothers it.  A lemon yellow color that I've never noticed in any other plant.  Remove seed pods to prevent seeding.

Soil: Most any          H: 24-36" (36-60" IB)    W: Indef.        B/M: Lemon yellow/5-6

Noxious Weed:  This plant can be weedy or invasive in certain areas.  Ours have limited themselves to a wet ditch where they were planted and become a 4' wide clump but in some areas they have been banned due to spreading too much.  It certainly should not be planted in or near a wetland area that you can't control.

Iris pseudacorus 'Variegata'

The variegated form of the species.  Green leaves are striped with yellow.  Attractive foliage when not in bloom.  Remove seed pods to prevent seeding.  Least spread in average soil and PM shade.  Fairly well-behaved under those growing conditions.  If they dry out, they will fail to thrive so moisture controls them.

What you're saying about us...

Looking at the way you ship a lot of TLC goes go into your plants. I have ordered from other places before. Most places have the plants in a plastic bag.   I never received them in a pot before. Thanks Again.

Isopyrum biternatum   False Rue Anemone              Zone:  3-8     

Isopyrum biternatum   False Rue AnemoneThis US Native wildflower is tuberous-rooted, generally reach 5-8" in height and is found on wooded lopes, in rich woods and thickets and river flood plains and often found in large colonies.  1/2" white Anemone like flowers with 5 petals and showy yellow stamens in the center.  Bloom is almost identical to Rue Anemone, hence the common name.  Foliage is 3-lobed leaflets and the deeper leaflet lobes and foliage under bloom and midway up the stem helps identify this from Anemonella. Usually summer dormant (especially in our hot greenhouses) but will often send up foliage in late fall after this summer siesta.

Soil: Humusy, well-drained        H: 6-9"  W: 3-6"       B/M:  White/3-4
