Bearded Iris is a beautiful and eye-catching plant of genus Iris of the Iridaceae family, which consists of over 300 species of iris plants and flowers. The literal meaning of Iris is "rainbow." The plant has immense historical importance, and Hippocrates named it Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow.
It is believed that whenever Prometheus gave fire to people, the untouched nature lit up in exotic rainbow colors, which were considered as a sign of joy and triumph.
The rainbow used to exhibit its beautiful colors all day and night. Once the darkness was over and the sun rose, everyone would witness the remarkable iris flowers blooming in their full glory, and these flowers resembled a rainbow.
The cultivation of this perennial dates back to more than two thousand years. It is grown not only for enhancing the beauty of your gardens but also as a raw material for the perfume industry.
These perennials are more like rhizome plants that have string- or cord-like roots. The leaves are flat and thin, whereas the flowers are large and quite fragrant. The flowers consist of six petals, each of which is beautifully shaped.
The flowers also come in a wide range of colors that exhibit a beautiful landscape. They usually showcase their full beauty from May to July, and about 2-3 flowers blossom simultaneously.
It prefers full sun in the first half of the half-day, and later, they can be grown under partial shade. But, all the varieties of plant irises need rich soil to exhibit their remarkable beauty.
These plants need good drainage to blossom. To make the soil rich for planting, you can add potassium-phosphorus fertilizers but don't ever use manure as a fertilizer because it can disrupt the growth of these irises.
They are pretty easy to grow and even easier to maintain. They need the love of light and warmth to grow and bloom. Make sure that you keep the soil moist and well-drained, especially in the budding phase of the plants.
Other than this, you only need to water them when the roots are significantly dried out. Talking about fertilizing the soil, it is better to fertilize the soil in the early spring to prepare the site for planting.
These plants have the capability of changing the entire outlook of your Carolina landscape. So, if you want some rainbow-colored beauty in your house that can leave everyone amazed, buy iris plants at the first chance you get.
