Iris cristata (Dwarf Crested Iris) is a low-growing perennial forming a quickly spreading mat of narrow, sword-shaped, bright green, pointed leaves. Myriads of small, light violet-blue flowers, up to 1.5 in. across (4 cm), adorned with a conspicuous white splotch and gold crest on each fall, appear in mid-spring, just above the foliage tips in perfect display. They carpet the ground and create a spectacular drift of blue color. This rhizomatous perennial is an excellent plant for the shaded rock garden, perennial border, or woodland garden. May also be used as a seasonal ground cover.
