copper iris, Iris fulva

For those of us not privileged to live in fulva land, these orange red beauties are an amazement. Apart fom color, they are pretty much a standard wild swamp iris. They become more common as one goes south from the Ohio River. And like other iris, they are quite toxic. Copper iris grow in AL, AR, FL, GA, IL, KY, LA, MO, MS, OH, TN, and TX. Barataria Preserve, Jefferson Parish LA, 4/15/22. Iris family, Iridaceae.
