Slidell man's passion for iris flowers blossoms into garden on Bayou Liberty Road: Military Road - The Times-Picayune

Monday, September 19, 2016

Greek for rainbow. Trahan's garden includes Iris fulva, or the Copper Iris, sporting their brick red flowers and examples of Iris nelsonii, the Abbeville Iris, a rare plant known to live in the wild only in a small area about six miles south of Abbeville, Louisiana. He is especially excited that a few of this specific type have sported a rare yellow bloom."At one time, this particular plant was thought to be extinct. It is now just considered very rare," Trahan said.Each plant is tagged with a hand-made metal marker featuring the plant's official name. Benny is at the Bayou Liberty garden each day. Kathleen visits to help with the weeding and to bring lunch that they share at an umbrella shaded table among the flowers.Since iris thrive in marsh and swamp environs, Trahan has created artificial swamps using plastic tarps, pots and an extensive watering system he installed by hand. Frogs sing from between the plants when you walk by the constructed paddies."These plants need a lot of water. We have some planted in the ground, but they really do well in these water paddies," he said.The garden has been a family project many times since its creation. Hurricane Katrina took out more than a dozen pine trees on the property and caused iris plants in pots to float down the road and into the neighbor's yards. One saving grace from that time is the brackish water did little to actually harm the plants themselves.After an extensive illness, Trahan said the weeds in the garden were higher than the plants themselves. It was then that their children and their spouses and their grandchildren pitched in to make things right."We had all 20 of them out here for three Sundays in a row, weeding and cleaning it up," Kathleen said. "They know what it means to him and we made a big picnic out of it all."In a special section of the garden are hybrid plants created by Trahan in honor of his wife, their children and grandchildren. He has completed the official process to name and register each unique bloom. They include Debbie's Delight, Pam's Pleasure and Missy's Dream for their daughters, and Kathy's Clown for Kathleen."I think it might be named for me," said Benny, wearing a grin.Chelsea Bell honors their granddaughter, while Holden's Hit, Hunter's Catch and Haden's Run are for their ball-playing grandsons. King Alex, Little Tris, Conner's Find and Brandon are also named after their grandchildren. Plants for daughter-in-laws Ellen and Debbie are in the process of being named and registered.Trahan enjoys sharing his iris expertise with others and has been a guest speaker on the subject as well as a consultant on garden projects. His work in donating plants and creating an iris area in New Orleans' City Park brought him to the attention of Keep Slidell Beautiful. H...
