How can you resist a plant with such a wonderful name? Thanks to our friend Dr. Kevin Vaughn, of Oregon, for breeding this aptly named selection. Kevin's 1997 introduction was awarded the DeBallion Award in 2005, the highest honor for a Louisiana iris. Starting in early May, Iris 'Red Velvet Elvis', a hummingbird favorite, produces 3' tall spikes of large flowers made up of ruby falls and mauve standards (they aren't red unless you're color blind). As with all Louisiana iris, they can be grown in slightly moist soil or in shallow standing water.
