The color is a feast for eyes (shrimp pink, with bright salmon beards), but this Iris is outstanding for the sheer numbers of blooms it yields! Each stem has 4 branches with 7 to 14 buds per stem - which means you will enjoy these beauties over the entire Iris season. An added bonus: the blooms do not lose their pink color despite sun and time! An excellent choice for any garden. Blooms early, mid and late in the Iris season on sturdy 35-inch stems.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Tall Bearded Irises will produce the most flowers if they receive a full day of sun, but will also perform reasonably well with a half day of sun. The most critical growing factor is the moisture level of the soil and drainage. Bearded Irises will absolutely not tolerate "wet feet" (too much water will cause the rhizomes to rot) and require very well-drained soil at all times of the year. They will grow in any good garden soil as long as this drainage is provided.

Division is recommended every 3-4 years to maintain healthy plants and achieve the maximum bloom. The best time of year to plant irises is in late summer after they are done blooming. Dig up the entire clump and use a sharp knife to cut apart the rhizomes. Keep only the newer ones around the outer edge of the clump and discard the old, woody center. Replant the new divisions 12-18 in. apart to allow ample room for new growth and good air circulation. Planting at the correct level is critical to the plant's health and flower production. Rhizomes should be planted so the soil barely covers the top of them, or 1-2 in. deep. Doing so will help to prevent soft rot.
