Most types of true Irises will not grow in Florida. A number of members of the Iris Family will grow here however, and will be covered later. People with access to a lot of water can grow Louisiana Irises. But, I could not. Too dry. The true Irises that I can grow here are the blue and white forms of Iris virginica. Photos are shown with this entry. Iris virginica needs quite a bit of moisture, but is easier for me to grow.
