Description

Breathtaking Additions to Your Borders in Late Spring.

Batik irises beautifully fill empty spaces in full sun to partial shade, their swordlike leaves growing in attractive fans. Capable of crowding out weeds, they are often planted en masse, or in a thick row, so as to form a lush border. In large gardens, it is not uncommon to see mass plantings in the range of 100 to 150 bearded iris. Since our Batik varieties multiply annually, you too will be able to divide them in future years and enjoy such magnificent tapestries of colour.

Nature Imitates Art with Breck's® Renowned Batik Iris Collection

In the ancient art of Batik, a skilled craftsman uses a tiny brass needle to drizzle hot liquid wax onto plain white fabric, painstakingly drawing tiny, delicate lines. When his drawing is complete, the fabric is dyed and the wax dissolves. Then the process is repeated with more deep, rich colours until an intricate and breathtaking design is revealed. Truly a treasure.

Living Art Made Just for Your Pleasure

We are proud to present our Renowned Batik Iris Collection. These amazing hybrids are the result of painstaking research and hard work by growers including noted iris hybridizer, Brad Kasperek. After years of crossbreeding, they were able to arrest the normal production of pigment in certain German iris, thus causing it to turn on and off randomly.

The results are simply magnificent. Streaks of white embellish the standards and falls of every bloom. Like their namesake, each individual flower seems to have been hand dyed—unique works of art for your borders, beds or cut-flower arrangements.

This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties:

  • Jitterbug: You'll fall in love with the abundant, well-formed blooms of this charming award winner. Boasts sunny yellow standards and flaring falls that are densely streaked in red. Grows 34" tall.

  • Gnus Flash: Brilliant standards lighten from gold to grey with silver streaks. Violet falls are streaked with silver and feature violet-tipped gold beards. Grows 36−40" tall.

  • Cheetah Cheese: An eye-catching beauty, with burnt orange-apricot petals. Falls are overlaid with deep garnet netting and creamy streaks. Bright tangerine beards lend to an exuberant spirit. Grows 32" tall.

  • Royal Blue Batik: This vigorous grower is truly a masterpiece. Fluted petals of royal blue are wildly streaked and splattered with white. Grows 24" tall.

  • Baboon Bottom: Dramatic swirls and streaks in shades of pink and white bedeck the petals. Tangerine beards are tipped with rose. Grows 24−26" tall.

  • Anaconda Love Iris: Fall in love with this dazzling, ruffled beauty—yours FREE with each Batik Iris Collection you order. Its light pink standards are the perfect contrast to beetroot purple falls, splotched and streaked with silver. A slightly sweet fragrance only adds to its charm. Grows 24" tall.
