Plant Features

Iris germanica 'Feedback' is a striking blue-violet tall iris that is fragrant and showy. The stalks have many buds and branches, their stems hold up well to inclement weather. The reblooming blossoms have a sweet fragrance, appearing in late spring and again in late summer. Deer tend to overlook irises.

Excellent companion plants for Bearded Iris include: Peonies, Alliums, Catmint, Salvia, Dianthus, Coreopsis, Lamb's Ear, Sedum, Lavender, and Daylilies.

Iris Plant Care Instructions: Irises are relatively low-maintenance plants; however, these actions will help keep them healthy and thriving. Remove spent flowers by cutting them back to the first set of healthy leaves. Any leaves that develop brown tips during the summer can be trimmed just below the browning area - this is a natural process for irises. Avoid mulching around the rhizomes to prevent rot. Regularly remove dead or dried leaves from the plant. In early fall, cut back all foliage to ground level. Divide iris plants every 3-5 years, typically about 4-6 weeks after flowering. Spring is the best time to apply a single application of balanced fertilizer.
