Blue Flag Iris

As some of our regular readers know, Miz Flora is a sucker for anything purple. And though she loves native plants (and cannot understand why humans go in for those rigged up non-natives that take extra care and give us wildlife no food) she always points out the purple ones, usually with a quiet comment, “Your readers might like to see that one.”

I tried looking it up. This might be Blue Flag Iris, Iris versicolor. It is planted on a piece of Reston Association land in our neighborhood. Those people are pretty conscientious about planting native plants. Perhaps I should send them a message and ask.

It’s a beautiful look, growing thick like this. No weeds either!
