Iris x louisiana 'Lucy's Legacy' is a stunning 1997 introduction from Australia's iris breeder Heather Pryor. Iris 'Lucy's Legacy' is topped, starting for us in early May with 31" tall spikes, ending with flower stalks bearing large bright russet-red flowers, highlighted by a butterscotch backside, and a bright central yellow throat. Like all Louisiana iris, Iris 'Lucy's Legacy' will grow in shallow water as well as in moist garden soils. We're unsure which Lucy's legacy is the namesake...the 3.2 million year old Lucy, the Lucy who portrayed Princess Xena, or the late Mrs. Ball, but regardless, we Love Lucy!
