Japanese Iris will grow in shallow water provided they are not submerged in winter. There is a smaller variety called Iris laevigata that can grow in water all year. Louisiana Iris hybrids, and Iris pseudacorus (yellow flag, water flag) can also grow in shallow water at the very edge of a pond. Siberians may not be grown in water - moist soil is fine though.
