They love moist soil but can't take having their crown frozen over winter. It's my favorite flower and this photo was taken last weekend at the Japanese iris gardens (Eartheart) in Harpswell, Maine. It was glorious to say the least!

Of course!! Love those. If I included every plant I like beside my pond, it would've been a snoozer...lol! But thank you for pointing this one out. That is one gorgeous picture. Looks like heaven. :) Thanks for reading pirl! Susanne

Thanks for the article. IF I had a pond I'd have a major case of Japanese iris-itis, not that I don't anyhow!

Lol, I caught the iris bug REALLY bad this year. Bad. That recent 2$ co-op didn't help. I even have family members gifting massive amounts of irises to me for birthday presents. lol

That's what I'm hoping for in 11 days! Well, he did buy me 8 JI's at Eartheart to add to my collection! Still, it's never enough.
