Iris Planting Instructions
Iris ( planting information for al Iris colors)
It's a magical time when bearded irises unfurl their pencil-slim buds to reveal a kaleidoscope of color in spring. Once commonly called flags, these perennials flourish in USDA Zones 3-9, where winter temperatures dip below freezing and allow the plant to go dormant before next year's growth.
This colorful Iris are sure to brighten your beds, borders and containers in shades of purple, lilac, white and yellow. Popular with florists, the exquisite, architectural blooms are borne on long, straight stems which are ideal for cutting for a vase indoors. Alternatively plant Iris 'Dutch Mixed' in groups for an outstanding display in late spring and early summer. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 15cm (6"). Bulb size 6/7.
