Description

Rocky Mountain Iris is known for its beautiful light blue flowers with purple lines. It is a rhizomatous perennial that grows 20 to 40 cm high. It has linear basal leaves that are similar in height to the flowering stems. It producces 1-4 flowers, the sepals are light to dark blue and surround the smaller upright blue petals.

Iris missouriensis is widely cultivated in temperate regions. It is a perennial plant that can grow in a variety of soil types, including sandy and loamy soils. It prefers acidic, neutral, or alkaline soils and can tolerate semi-shade or no shade. The plant requires moist or wet soil to thrive. It is in flower from May to June and is pollinated by insects. 

Type: Hardy perennial

Location: Sun or part shade

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 8

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 5 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 80 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
