Northern Blue Flag (Iris versicolor)


Did you know the type of iris currently in your yard most likely originates from Europe or Asia? Yet, there there are underappreciated irises native to Michigan that are being passed over in home landscaping efforts. Consider picking the plant that has evolved to support local wildlife.

Native irises are loved by both butterflies and hummingbirds and can be a wonderful component to your landscape. They can also tolerate a wide range of soil and sun exposure.

Plants are currently provided in quart-sized recycled plastic pots donated to our nursery by community members.
