So much rain in the North and the irises are laughing. Of cours its not funny at all for the poor folk up KeriKeri and Kaeo way but some success with their preventative measures. Flooding is not new to them.
The Louisiana Iris can take a fair amount of water however and is the ideal plant for that boggy spot, whether it is the edge of a pond or a ditch on the side of the road.
My irises get a fair amount of grey water and flower beautifully.
Keep up the good work in your gardens and remember the big question of the day....housework or gardening? hmmm
