Iris brevicaulis 'Auburn Blues' started its second life during our 2006 botanical excursion near Seale, Alabama (just south of Auburn) when we spied it being swept away in a fast-moving, storm-swollen stream. The rhizome that we were able to snag and bring home, quickly made a lovely clump with the best flowering show that we've ever seen on the often sparsely flowering native, Iris brevicaulis. Our original clump is now 2' tall x 3' wide, adorned in spring with large, light blue-lavender flowers that occur near the base of the clump, starting for us in late May.
