Blue Flag Irises
Blue Flag Irises grow in wet meadows, swamps, marshes, and along lakes and streams from Manitoba to Nova Scotia at the northern limit of its range and from Country to Virginia at its southern limit. This perennial flower tends to grow in clumps that form from thick underground networks of rhizomes. The flower, which blooms in June, rises on a stalk from among narrow swordlike leaves.
