The beardless irises also begin their season in May. The earliest of the Siberian irises (Iris sibirica) begin blooming in May, while the late-blooming cultivars wait until June. The iris native to the Great Lakes is the wetland blue flag iris (Iris virginica var. shrevei). Easier to incorporate into a garden is the tiny beardless crested iris (Iris cristata shown), which is native to parts of the United States but not the Great Lakes region. It likes a bit of shade and makes a good ground cover.
