dwarf lake iris


This attractive tiny iris (about 2 ” tall) is deep blue. It grows in Door and two other Counties in Wisconsin. Cool, moist soil along Lake Michigan is its habitat. It is a  threatened species.

A must see in Door County in the Spring.  Get to know your natural relative with an up close look. Second best would be to get a wildflower book from your local library or book store.
