White Flag Iris
The white flag iris blooms each Spring (provided that a late freeze doesn’t damage the buds and blooms) and the Iris foliage remains green all year — from the high temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit to the low temperatures in the low 20’s to upper 10’s.
It’s very easy to grow and can be found all over the world– thanks to it’s ability to tolerate a variety of soils and local weather environments.
The brown leafy tissue was caused by a freeze about two weeks before the blooms appeared. To improve the appearance — simply cut out the dead brown tissue (then add it to the compost pile to harvest the nutrients for future plant feeding!).
