CRUSHED ICE

A hybrid of the series Hexagone, which includes I. hexagona, I. fulva, I. brevicaulis, I. nelsonii and I. giganticaerulea, Louisianas will grow in standing water but are perfectly happy in regular garden soil if the soil pH is 6.5 or lower.

They bloom about two weeks after tall beardeds and Siberians. Louisianas require lots of water, rich acid soil and heavy feeding of a balanced fertilizer.

They should be kept well mulched and can be moved in late summer to early fall. Set the plants at least two feet apart as they multiply and spread rapidly. The rhizome should be planted horizontally, about 2" deep, and must be kept well watered, particularly during the growing season.

The far right column contains Awards received (if any), registered height and bloom season and price.
