(J. Ghio 81) This stunning and easy-to-grow Louisiana iris hybrid has been the rage in our garden for the last few years at our Spring Open House, so we finally got around to potting a few. The deer-resistant, evergreen, sword-like foliage is topped in early May with cinnamon/lavender flowers with bright yellow centers...attractive to hummingbirds. I know the color sounds hard to believe, but this hybrid is amazing. For best results, Iris x louisiana 'Handmaiden' should be planted in a bog or in evenly moist garden soil. In 3 years, expect a 3' wide clump.
