This unique clone of our native Iris virginica was selected by Arkansas native plant guru, the late Carl Amason, from a population along the Ouachita River in southern Arkansas. It was subsequently named for Carl by another Arkansas plantsman, Larry Lowman. This vigorous 4' tall clone emerges with a nice purple flush to the new foliage and is later topped in early June with mauvy-pink flowers held on black-purple flower stalks...attractive to hummingbirds. In 2 years, the deer-resistant clump can easily expand to 4' wide...happy in both regular garden soil as well as bogs.
