A pageant of flamboyant reds, oranges, violets, and yellows brings lively color to the June border. Planted together or sprinkled throughout the perennial garden, they amount to a brilliant, eye-catching display. One each of six Tall Bearded Iris, labeled.
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 Irises 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.
