Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: The petite Iris cristata has blooms that range from violet/lavender to nearly white. Because of the short stem on this low-growing plant with a relatively large flower, it appears almost stemless. Although it has a short blooming period, it readily spreads once established – forming colonies of small sword-shaped leaves. It can benefit from being divided every 3 years or so. Because it is a small plant, it should be planted about every 6″.
