Dwarf Crested Iris is an Exceptionally Diverse Species

Their primary stems are anywhere from dark green to light yellow. These stems usually have two to eight branches. The sickle-shaped leaves are both brown and green. Bunches of the plant tend to branch together and creep over entire flowerbeds. The characteristic light lavender blossom appears from spring to early summer. The end of its yearly cycle comes in winter when it becomes dormant.

Sometimes these blossoms are white or even pink. These blooms have two pairs of petals: Three on the outside and three on the inside. After this blossoming, the flower continues to grow. It reproduces by making a capsule full of seeds after the blossom appears. The dwarf crested iris was first introduced to England in the mid-18th century. It was already native to America, where it flourishes in the areas that were previously mentioned. It does well in woodland areas, mountainous areas, rocky hillsides, ravine bottoms, and streams.

Dwarf Crested Iris is not a real big fan of sunlight.

Also, it does best in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. It can survive in sunny areas but does best in semi-shaded and cool regions. If you plan to use it for the first time, be aware that you should apply peat and sharp sand first. You can plant it in the spring, summer, or autumn. Gardeners will also want to be aware of its primary enemies: snails, slugs, deer, iris borer, verbena bud moth, whiteflies, iris weevil, thrips, aphids, and nematodes.

After planting, it can grow up to ten years. It is familiar to most nurseries and, therefore, comfortable to find. The dwarf crested iris is just one type of iris. The iris species is exceptionally diverse.

The Dwarf Crested Iris is one of two crested irises native to North America, with the other is Dwarf Lake Iris. The tassel-like tips are how the name cristata came to be part of this plant. It refers to the yellow crest on the sepal.
