DescriptionA Masterpiece in Rare Iris Hues
Irises, with their swirling standards and curling falls have given us some of the most dynamic, dramatic and thrilling colours in the garden— thanks to their hints and highlights, bitones and tritones, edges, lines and contrasts. In fact, iris means rainbow in Greek! This collection, filled with some of Breck's® most unique and rare iris colourations, will create a rainbow of breathtaking hues in your mid- to late-spring garden. Easy to grow. Long-lasting cut flowers.
With literally thousands of variations of tall bearded iris in the world, it helps to identify these beautiful blossoms by their three main parts:

Habit: Sweetly fragrant Habit has deep purpleblack falls topped with gorgeous, soft lavenderblue standards and adorned with rich gold beards. Height: 34".
