Ooh la la! This award winning Louisiana Iris boasts deep velvety red falls with just a touch of golden yellow at the base for contrast, and are centered by three more deep rich velvety mauve standards. It is considered the best of the red Louisiania Irises. These easy-to-grow perennials are happy under average garden conditions. The foliage is green and sword-shaped. Hummingbirds love it. (And why not? We do, too!) Winner of the Mary Swords DeBaillon Medal in 2005.
