Product Description


The cemetery white iris (Iris albicans) is aptly names because it can often be found blooming in cemeteries in late March to early April. These same sites often become very dry with cracked soils during the summer, but these white iris don't seem to mind. These are not the same as the Louisiana iris that love the water, and these prefer well drained soils. They mix well with a spring blooming verbena and other non aggressive, creeping ground covers.
Where do they come from?
Since they can be found in many different areas and on very old sites, many believe the old cemetery whites to be native to America, but they are not. They, like most bulbs that do well in the South, are natives of the Mediterranean area. Their 1860 recorded discovery is attributed to Johan Lange, a Danish botanist.
