Yes, iris

RE: What is this?!


Iris is pretty tough. I have quite a few that even do well in a bed of dry soil. They root pretty close to the surface and so when they start multiplying they should be divided. With a big clump of iris, you'll often see these rhizomes right at the ground level. With any luck, you'll have flowers by next spring!


RE: What is this?!

When you plant it, please put in the soil the other way round, so that the green side is up. ;)
