Shades of burgundy and red violet combine to create a rich, silky purple effect, with caramel-colored accents at the heart of the ruffled petals. Plant them with white and soft lavender Iris to provide a light backdrop for these spectacular blooms.
Iris are among the best-known and best-loved garden plants. Say the word, Iris, and visions of brilliant June flowers come to mind. This huge genus contains upwards of 200 species, which range from timid and inconspicuous wildlings to the splendid and extravagant Tall Bearded Iris. The chosen habitats of Iris range from standing water to formal borders, and there is scarcely a shade or combination of colors that can't be found. Plenty of sun and well-drained soil with a pH near neutral are the primary requirements for their success.
