This one's special, and she knows it. Her uniquely colored attire features icy white standards infused with sunny yellow. The fabulous suede-brown falls are made even more memorable with generously ruffled edges and warm russet beards. We have limited supplies of this new introduction from Schreiner's Gardens, so please order early.
Iris is a large genus with upwards of 200 species, which range from inconspicuous wildlings to the extravagant Tall Bearded Iris, which we offer in fall only. Plenty of sun and well-drained soil with a pH near neutral are the primary requirements for their success. Bearded Iris are best planted in the fall because they go dormant in June and are harvested in August. We start shipping bareroot plants in early September, continue to late October for warmer zones. For Zones 3?4 (yes, they are hardy in Zone 3), we recommend early orders, which we will fill in early to mid-September.
