LOUISIANA IRIS LIST CHAT

||Louisiana-Iris (formerly LAIRIS) hosted by YahooGroups.com.
||Louisiana-Iris - THE LOUISIANA IRIS FORUM. The forum was originally known as LAIRIS.
The objectives of the email group 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, Louisiana's 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.
Louisiana iris have been found to be readily adaptable to a variety of climates and are now cultivated in many parts of the world. Both experts
and novices are encouraged to join in this discussion. We all have something to learn.
We are pleased to have you join us!
