Plant Features

Opposites Tall Bearded Iris Plants produce a fluff of white petals that sit on top of dark purple petals that fade white towards the gold bearded center. These showy flowers will remind you of a whip-cream treat with every glance! Iris plants grow best in sunny locations with well-drained soils. They make spectacular additions to rock gardens and early summer beds and borders. Rhizomes should be divided every 3-4 years. Deer tend to overlook irises.
