Bearded Iris

A Springtime favorite, Bearded Iris give you reliable colour with it’s vast variety of shades and appealing texture with broad grass like foliage. It is extremely easy to grow as long as you keep it clear of leaves and debris that could bring on a bout of root rot.  Cut the plant down to the ground after flowering and mulch it well over the winter.

Bearded Iris can be divided in the late Summer once it’s been trimmed back, every 4-5 years.
