How lovely! I had no idea there were such things as Louisiana irises.

I like the wonderful purple against the green, and have always liked irises. Didn't know there were Louisiana irises, tho.

Very fine composition and color, Steve!

Beautiful picture, Steve. That is a Louisiana iris, but the species is I. giganticaerulea, not I. fulva. There are five species in the Louisiana iris group, and fulva is a red one. Take a look at: http://zydecoirises.com/Species/Species.htm

I love those blue irises. We used to have a ton in our yard when I was growing up.
