OTHER: The African Iris is one of my personal favorites! I absolutely adore their giant colorful 2” flowers, & their evergreen long grass-like leaves that grow in neat clusters & never look scraggly. These plants are an excellent choice for any location, from being used as a specimen plant to beds & borders, containers, or rock gardens. African Iris’ are quite tolerant of heat & drought, & can thrive in a variety of settings from desert to coastal conditions. They are deer & rabbit resistant too.

This East African native is hardy in zones 8 – 11, but can be fully enjoyed in cooler climates. They grow quickly enough to be enjoyed as an annual, can be brought indoors over the winter, or grown as a houseplant year round. The plants will also form corms that can be dug in fall & stored over the winter to replant the following spring. Of course you can also collect your own plant’s seeds to start even more beauties too!

In the garden, the huge showy blooms will attract bees & butterflies, but they are also a popular cut flower despite the fact that each bloom lasts only 1 day, because there are so many flowers per stalk. More great news – they are nicknamed ‘Fortnight Lily’ because they bloom approximately every 2 weeks, giving you a long season filled with continuous enjoyment.

Side note – I read an article that stated parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested – I was not able to find another source to validate this, so am not certain if that is correct, but figured it was best to play it safe & tell you not to eat them.
