This unique deer-resistant selection of the native Iris fulva was discovered in northeastern Arkansas's Crittenden County by native plant enthusiast, Lois Wilson. Instead of the typically copper colored flower, the 3' tall stalks of Iris fulva 'Lois' are topped in early May with bright golden yellow flowers. All Iris fulva selections prefer rich moist soils for best growth. Thanks to Larry Lowman of Ridgecrest Nursery in Arkansas for naming and sharing this treasure.
