Commonly known as Walking Iris, it is a rhizomatous perennial plant with showy flowers. This plant can be used indoors as a lucky bamboo or lucky mangrove. It is a unique plant since it tolerates both drought and flooding, so it can be grown in a container with water, terrarium, aquarium or just a small dish. It tolerates full shade as well, thus can be kept in low light conditions as a house plant. It can grow in neglect in a glass of water for years! If planted oudoors, the plant blooms all year, but is at it's best in Spring thru Autumn. It stays green all year and grows up to 2-3 feet.
