About Iris

Irises are perennial plants, growing from creeping rhizomes or, in drier climates, from bulbs. They may be bearded or beardless. They have long, erect flowering stems which may be simple or branched, solid or hollow, and flattened or circular.

The rhizomatous species usually have 3 to 10 basal sword-shaped leaves growing in dense clumps. The bulbous species have cylindrical, basal leaves. The inflorescences are in the shape of a fan and contain one or more symmetrical six-lobed flowers.

Planting and care

  • Mulch their roots to help them retain moisture during warm dry periods
  • Using a garden knife, cut out any soft, mushy parts of the rhizome/bulb that seem to have rotted
  • Every three to five years Bearded Iris tend to become overcrowded and the rhizomes should be divided
  • Do not overwater
  • After hard frost in the fall, cut the foliage back hard, remove any foliage that appears spotted or yellowed and dispose all the debris

Iris care
