Iris Cristata – Dwarf Crested

This darling little iris is a native plant hardy in zone 3 to 9. Iris Cristata is commonly called Dwarf Crested Iris.

Iris Cristata

They are pale blue with gold crested falls and bloom in May here in Wisconsin. They are actually found more commonly further east and south but grow fine in other parts of the country.

They do fine in sun or dappled shade and are tolerant of both wet and dry soil. They will naturalize via shallow rhizomes, kind of like a strawberry. Not bothered by deer and rabbits.

The size of these iris can vary. Some hybrid varieties can be up to 8 inches tall or more. The type that we have here are quite small, about 4 inches, with one inch, blue violet flowers.

They will tolerate both overly wet and overly dry soil, but love moist fertile soil and plenty of sun. Siberian Iris have no serious pests.

This historic iris was registered as a TB but is now considered IB. It is really hardy and thrives on neglect. The name comes from the siren of the Rhine who with her song enchanted sailors and lured them to their death.

The standards are a glowing yellow while the falls are a velvety violet with distinct white and yellow veining and butter yellow edges. The beard is lemon yellow.

This plant is a vigorous grower with healthy foliage tinged at the base. Also a heavy bloomer. Cheerful!!

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

By Henry – 1981

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

This daylily is supposed to be 18 inches but is smaller for me, 15 inches with 4.25 inch blooms. Not a true miniature or dwarf but a smaller daylily that is comfortable joining the party at the front of the border.

A dormant diploid, it has fire engine red blooms with a deeper red eye zone over a green throat. Heavy substance means extended bloom and these cuties are round, recurved and ruffled to boot.
