I am celebrating my trip to Washington later this week with a Native of DC (and areas all around it). The Dwarf Crested Iris is a diminutive 4-6″ native Iris that thrives in a lightly shaded garden. Sunshine Farms has a great little write up about it being a great ground cover.
It is an excellent plant for early spring bloom in a rock garden, perennial border or woodland garden and when the flowers are gone, the foliage makes a nice ground cover for woodland areas.
