Group Description


The objectives of the Louisiana-Iris Forum List is to promote the Louisiana Iris as a garden flower and provide a global standing conference for discussion of adaptability, propagation, culture and breeding of these remarkable plants.

The Louisiana irises constitute a unique group in the iris family. Among all the irises, Louisianas are most unique in color and in form. They exhibit an incredibly broad range of color and are considered very significant in providing the color red to the iris spectrum. An equally wide variety of forms, when combined with the color range, make for truly great horticultural opportunities.

Louisiana irises belong to the subsection Apogon (without beard or beardless), series Hexagonae of the genus Iris. They are derived from five species, most of which are indigenous to a limited area of south Louisiana and the Gulf Coast marsh areas between Texas and Florida. Two species, Iris brevicaulis and I. fulva, extend the range northward up the Mississippi Valley. Iris hexagona inhabits the southern Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, but by far, the greatest concentration is in the state of Louisiana, hence the name Louisiana Irises.

Both experts and novices are encouraged to join in the discussion. We all have something to share and learn.

This list supports and is part of the Society for Louisiana Iris. Check out the Society's web site www.louisianas.org for further information.
