Louisiana Irises are at their best when grown in wet to boggy soil or in shallow water up to four inches deep. They tend to bloom heaviest when grown in water. However, they can also be grown successfully in the garden as long as a consistent source of moisture is available.

Louisiana Irises bloom best in full sun but will also grow in partial shade. Late spring is the ideal time to transplant the rhizomes, though late summer or early fall is also acceptable. Do not transplant them in the heat of summer or in late fall. Plants will multiply quickly if sited properly.

These plants are heavy feeders, especially in zones where the growing season is relatively short. Provide a dose of liquid fertilizer on a regular schedule for best results.

Provide pine straw or other mulch in the fall, but be sure to pull away the mulch early in the spring to prevent rot.
