Café Bleu Reblooming Bearded Iris

Café Bleu Reblooming Bearded Iris

A bewitching French import!

Frilly ruffles cover this reliable rebloomer, which displays falls that are a noticeably lighter shade of blue than the standards above them. White beards with a touch of lemon yellow rest on the flaring, lower petals. Café Bleu's abundance of flowers release a pleasant fragrance and are carried on sturdy stems, making it an excellent variety for cutting.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
