Farm favorite blue clump forming smaller blue iris, long-lived, grows to 1–2’. Ideal for woodland garden sunny edge, dappled shade and bog gardens. Hummingbirds are attracted to the blue flower. Some Plateau Indian tribes used the roots to treat toothache while the Zuni apply a poultice of chewed root to increase strength of newborns and infants. The root is emetic.
