Iris cristata, Dwarf Crested Iris
Sold in a strip of 5 regular plugs for $37.50
These regular plugs are an excellent, economical choice for starter plants that do not produce exceptionally broad or deep root systems.
Each individual plug measures 1 ⅞” x 1 ⅞” across by 2 ⅜” deep.
These plugs are landscape-ready, but also offer a head start should you be interested in potting them up.
Native to parts of southwestern Pennsylvania, dwarf crested iris stands at 4 – 12 inches tall and makes a good ground cover in partly shady areas with moist, well-drained soil. It spreads by rhizomes but won’t take over. It can be found in woody sites with peaty soils. Spring blooms of purple or white attract hummingbirds and bees.
