The Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland Labrador in Canada is a great location to visit where you can view and capture a picture or two of the Beachhead Iris while in full bloom. The flower displays petals that have intriguing lines or veins adorning them and the center of the flower has both female and male organs.
For growing purposes, the Beachhead Iris prefers light and loves to flourish in wet meadows, along the sides of rivers or out in the open forests. A flower that blooms around the month of June prominently displays three large bluish purple colored petals. The seeds are perfectly ripened in August and are then pollinated by the insects.
The leaves that surround the Beachhead Iris are a bright shade of green and are fairly tall and slim with pointed tips. The stem protrudes from the center of a group of leaves growing straight up with the flower opening atop at around twenty-four inches in height. When in full bloom, the entire plant can spread over an area of about eighteen inches.
While visiting the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland, be sure to tour around the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve and explore one of the most important botanical sites in Newfoundland. Over three hundred types of plant species thrive here and you will soon find that the Beachhead Iris is not the only type of flower that you are taking a picture of.
