(Pryor 97) This 1997 Louisiana iris introduction is an obscenely vigorous selection that makes a 3' tall x 8' wide patch in just three years...if you keep it happy. The massive deer-resistant clump is topped in late April through early May with large, lavender hummingbird-friendly flowers with narrow, white borders. If you can provide good, moist, rich soils or even shallow standing water, Iris x louisiana 'Now and Forever' is a can't-miss plant for even the brownest of thumbs.
