Walking Iris

Another tropical iris introduced from Brazil, this plant produces striking blue flowers from February through August. New plants grow out of the flower stalks. The weight causes the stalks to lean to the ground and take root. Then that new plant repeats the process. In this way the walking iris expands or “walks” outward from the original plant.
