Description for Iris (Discovery Blue)

This fall planted perennial bulbs are scapose, having a single central leafless hollow flower stem. Several green or blue-green, narrow, strap-shaped leaves arise from the bulb. The plant stem usually bears a solitary flower, but occasionally a cluster of flowers (umbel). Flowers may be double or triple, grow on a stem or with multiple flowers per stem, and height varies from 6 to 14 inches.

This trumpet shape contains the stamens and is the most conspicuous feature of the flower. Spread may be up to 38 mm wide and flowers are slightly sweet scented.

Planting and care

The general rule for planting is to cover the bulb with soil to 3 times its vertical diameter. Keep planting depth at 6 to 8 inches and planting spacing should be 4 to 6 inches.
Set them upright at the bottom of the hole, tops up (pointed side up), and space properly. After planting water thoroughly to settle the soil and to encourage the start of root growth. After they bloom in the spring, allow the plants to grow until they die off. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year.

SunlightSoilWaterTemperatureFertilizer
Full sun to partial shadeThey are not fussy about soil as long as it is loose and well drained. To improve drainage in heavy soils, deeply dig in plenty of organic matter prior to planting.Water newly planted bulbs thoroughly. In many regions, fall and winter are wet or snowy enough to provide moisture. Plants do not need summer moisture. Daffodil flowers grow best in 50 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit Daffodils do not require heavy fertilization. When preparing the beds, use 2 to 3 pounds of a complete garden fertilizer such as a 6-24-24 or other fertilizer with a 1:4:4 or 1:3:3 N-P-K ratio.

Caring for Iris

  • Apply a low-nitrogen, high-potash fertilizer after flowering if bulbs are not performing.
  • Water late-flowering daffodils in dry spring weather (flowers may abort in dry conditions).
  • Keep plantings well watered if precipitation fails; continue until the foliage begins to yellow.
  • Deadhead plants as flowers fade (for neater garden appearance) and allow leaves to remain for at least 6 weeks.
  • Lift and divide the clumps when flowering becomes sparse or the clumps congested.
  • To remove the dead plants, either snip them off at the base or twist the leaves while pulling lightly.
  • Once daffodils and tulips have gone by, add bonemeal to the soil for next year s blooms.
