This Don Jacobs selection of the easy-to-grow evergreen groundcover Iris japonica was made for its increased hardiness and floriferous nature. Iris japonica is notoriously lacking in floral power, but such is not the case with 'Eco Easter'. The deer-resistant iris fans emerge from spreading rhizomes, similar to Iris tectorum, but considerably faster. In early April in NC, the fans are topped with numerous floral sprays of lavender-blue flowers...a hummingbird favorite. Each dainty-looking flower is highlighted by a dramatic yellow throat and adjacent purple markings. The rhizomes grow close to the ground and are easy to extract when you are ready to share. If you've got a difficult shady spot, Iris japonica is for you.
