DescriptionBreathtaking 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.
