Black Gamecock is probably the most popular Louisiana Iris available, a
beautiful, dark, and interesting full-sun perennial for your summer
garden. The dark purple to black flowers will bloom in June and July
for an impressive mid-summer show. Combine with other Louisiana Irises
and moisture-loving plants for a fuller effect.
This is one of those plants that solves a problem in your garden – it
will grow in that low wet area that drowns your other plants. Louisiana
Irises are perfect for bog gardens and the edges of ponds. They need
constant moisture to thrive – do not let them dry out between waterings.
Black Gamecock spreads pretty fast, creeping through your garden,
creating a wonderfully natural wild-flower look that really compliments
water features and dense green garden designs.
