The Blue Iris is the state flower of Tennessee. As I was growing up, I looked forward to their showy colors every Spring.

Tall Bearded Iris 'Grape Expectations'.  Height 36"-48"/90cm-1.20m.  Like all Bearded Irises, it likes a position in full sun with well-drained soil.  It flowers mid-season.

Love the contrast of the velvet-purple with the pale silvery-green grass (this looks like Stipa tenuissima, a good choice for med climates)

Iris, the Tennessee state flower... These just thrive in my gardens.  Planning on splitting & moving 16 of them this fall.  Hopefully next year I get a better showing from them.
