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