Bearded Iris (Iris x germanica)
Bearded Iris: Iris x germanica, or the bearded iris, adds a generous splash of blue-violet or lavender color to a sunny summer garden.
The bearded iris is a native of the Mediterranean region. However, it is well-suited to North America, and you can find it thriving across most of the temperate zones in the United States.
Bearded Iris Is an Easy-Grow Species
Like most members of its family, the bearded iris loves the morning sunshine and would prefer to have a little bit of late-afternoon shade. They need loosened soil that will drain well--they do not like standing water. They are tolerant of drought, but you'll need to water them during heat spells. Besides these minimal care needs, this showy flower is not as demanding as its appearance might imply.
Have trouble with deer? Those pesky four-legged foragers will usually consume bearded iris as their last option. However, the lovely floral aroma seems to dissuade them.
The Tall, Graceful Look of the Bearded Iris
Most people identify the bearded iris quickly by its slightly drooping, ruffled petals, which appear similar to a beard. Emerging from the late spring to early summer, this plant is a stunning addition to your garden's border or as the focal point of any garden bed.
The plant's dark green leaves are strap-like with a spear-shaped tip. They form a sheath around a central stem and stand around three feet tall. They might have a slight droop or downward curve as they grow heavier.
The soft-edged flowers grow three inner petals that reach upward and three lower petals, which droop to form the famous beard shape.
TN Nursery's bearded iris plants are the standard classics: blue, purple, or lavender. However, variations exist in other colors--yellow, cream, or white.
