The Water Irises are planted on the banks, around ponds or in marshy, wet terrain. Among the best known, two semi-aquatic species called Iris versicolor and Iris pseudacorus, the marsh iris. Iris ensata or Japanese Iris is a magnificent bank plant, but it requires a bit delicate cultivation. These rhizomatous perennials belong to the Iridaceae family, which includes a large number of iris species. Among the irises of wet environments, four species stand out for their beauty and robustness. Iris sibirica, with its blue-violet flowers, creates a peaceful atmosphere by the water's edge. The 'Caesar's Brother' variety is known for its intense blue colour and vigour. Iris laevigata light blue, is a refined Japanese species. Its 'Queen Victoria' variety is prized for its lovely pink flowers. Iris setosa, from Alaska, is a plant particularly resistant to cold. Let's also mention Iris virginica, the Virginia Iris, its flower in shades of pink and violet adds colour to the banks of a water point. All water iris species have a rhizome that allows them to colonize the soil over time. Their tufted foliage is composed of long, narrow leaves, deciduous or evergreen in winter.
