Neomarica northiana or Trimezia northiana, commonly called walking iris or North’s false flag, is a flowering rhizomatous plant native to Brazil. The species belongs to the iris family Iridaceae. The plant reproduces by producing plantlets at the end of the flower stalks after flowering. Once the plantlets grow large enough, they weigh the stalk down and bend them downwards until they touch soil, where the plantlets root themselves and become new plants. The species also reproduces by producing offsets from rhizomes. Plants typically grow 2 to 3 feet tall and consist of fans composed of leaves that are 2 inches wide individually. N. northiana flower from late spring through early fall. Flower stalks contain several flowers that are only open for one day each. The inflorescence is very vibrant with white, purple, gold, and orange flowers that have a light and pleasant scent. Plant in a well draining potting soil mix. Water thoroughly once the soil has become dry. Plants prefer bright light, indirect to partial sun. N. northiana make excellent houseplants as they are easy to care for and have beautiful flowers and foliage. USDA hardiness zones 9 through 10.
