Plant Features

Cape Cod Boys Iris is just like that famous beach, Cape Cod will make you think of the beautiful beaches and oceans. Producing periwinkle blue flowers that have dark blue veins and a yellow center. This variety blooms for a long period of time, but even when it's not blooming the Cape Cod Boys Iris has wide blue-green leaf blades that are sure to be an eye-catcher! Cape Cod Boys ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

Iris Companion Plants: Aquilegia, Helleborus, Hosta

Cape Cod Boys Iris Plant Care Instructions: Plants are relatively care; however, these actions will keep it healthy and growing. Only water if there has been no rain for 3 weeks. Spent flowers should be cut back all the way down to the first set of attractive leaves. Any leaves that develop brown tips during the summer can be cut off just below the browning area. This is a natural process with iris. Do not mulch. Keep dried leaves cleaned out of the plant. All foliage should be cut back to the ground in early fall. Plants should be divided every 3-5 years. This should be done 4 weeks after flowering. Spring is a good time apply one application of fertilizer.
