This native of western United States, is common along roadsides and damp meadows in the spring. Once established, these pretty blue flowers will spread rapidly through division of rhizomous bulbs. One to three flowers on sturdy stems are blue with white and purplish veins. The leaves are long, and strap-like. Keep Wild Blue Iris moist but not wet and out of pastures as the rhizomes are mildly toxic.
