Iris cristata
Dwarf Crested Iris is a small plant that colonizes and makes a nice ground cover or border for shady areas. "Stemless" flowers float above the short foliage. Performs best in half sun/half shade and well-drained soil. Dwarf crested irises that receive a lot of sunlight will probably need to be watered regularly. It spreads via rhizome and can be divided as needed.  Try this small iris in container gardens.

Uses: Hummingbirds, bees, ground cover, border, acidic soil, container gardens
Bloom time: April or May

Height: 5 to 10 inches
Space: 12 to 16 inches

Light: Half shade
Moisture: Dry to average
5 Stars
the blooms on this plant are beautiful!! The plant does expand slowly which allows you to divide. Excellent for a rock garden or front of the border.
