We purchased this dwarf, nameless selection of our Southeast US native copper iris from a mail order plant adoption facility in 2003. As promised when we purchased it, it has remained shorter than the typical species, maturing for us at 20" tall. In 2010, we christened it Iris 'Little Cajun'. The evergreen clumps are topped in early May with a splendid display of coppery cinnamon flowers that attract hummingbirds. Iris fulva is super easy to grow since it is equally at home in typical garden soil or in 3-6" of standing water and muck. That's muck with an M, not to be confused with similar verbiage when one steps into muck with an M!
