Iris (tall bearded hybrids)

Iris (tall bearded hybrids)

Common name bearded iris
Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple-and-tan (late spring)
Size 3'
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained garden soil

We've gotten a few bearded irises through the years. Some we received from gardening friends, others we picked up here and there. Most of them have reproduced very nicely. In late spring, they provide a marvellous backdrop to our pond. I even like the tangle of rhizomes at their base!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
