An "update" on Iris odaesanensis from May 22cd
Iris lacustris does fine in a shadier garden, despite its native habitat of open lakeshores.
Rick Rodich zone 4a. Annual precipitation ~24 inches
near Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Iris cristata 'Vein Mountain' seems to vary from year to year in the shading of the flower color. This year it seems to be middle of the road.
And is it normal for Iris odaesanensis seed pod stems to curl around?
