June’s Plant: 

Iris prismatica Pursh; Slender Blue-flag

The June Guess that Plant was slender blue-flag, a species restricted to acidic wetlands of the Coastal Plain and occasional in the northern counties (Stone 1910).  Mary Hough (1983) documents collections from all counties except Salem, Cumberland and Gloucester.  Our plants are distinguished from the more widespread large blue-flag, Iris versicolor, by its narrow, upright leaves, and deep blue-purple color of its petals.
