Additional Information

Japanese Iris

Plant 6-8" apart in slightly acid well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade, with rootstock just below soil level. Prefers moisture during active growth and flowering. Often takes 2 years to establish, then is best left undisturbed for a long time. Can be planted in large pots for convenient display during bloom time.Native to Japan and northern China.

Iris was the ancient Greek goddess of the Rainbow, and is now a genus of beautiful flowers in a range of sizes and a rainbow of colors. Growing from bulbs or fleshy rhizomes, irises of all sizes are superb for cutting and borders.

For all iris, “standards” are the three smaller erect petals; “falls” are the three larger pendent, reflexed or spreading petals. The “crest,” “blotch” or “signal” is the blaze of contrasting color on the fall; bearded iris have soft hairs protruding upward from the crest.
