 Neomarica gracilis
Family: Iridaceae
Walking Iris
Origin: Central America, Mexico
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersUnusual color

It has short lived ivory flowers with reddish-brown transverse bars on the claw. The delicate flowers last only a day but the plant continues to form new blooms for long periods of time during late spring months. Makes also an excellent houseplant. This is not a water Iris, be careful not to overwater. Neomarica gracilis is a type of walking Iris. Once the flower is spent, the stem that it was born on lays to the ground and from that a new plant is formed. For that reason it is said to be walking across your garden. You can divide plants and plant them in new locations.

Neomarica gracilis grows best in moist, well-draining soil in areas with light to full shade but will also tolerate some sun as long as they receive adequate moisture.
