Description:

Rare Iris Hues for Your Garden
Our Showtime Bearded Iris Collection is filled with some of the most extraordinary iris colourations. These varieties will create a rainbow of breathtaking hues in your mid- to late-spring garden.

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.

Iris Anatomy 101
With literally thousands of variations of tall bearded iris in the world, it helps to identify these beautiful blossoms by their three main parts:

Standards: The three upper iris petals that stand at attention, curving to meet each other at their highest point. Standards can be ruffled or lacy, solid or multicoloured.
Beards: The fuzzy flower accents that look like colourful caterpillars! Beards not only give the bearded iris its name, they help guide pollinators to the treasure trove of nectar inside.
Falls: Often a contrasting colour to the standards, the falls consist of three downward curving petals that highlight the beards and complete the distinctive iris look!

  • Easy to grow
  • Winter hardy in zones 4-9
  • Thrives in sun to part shade
  • Long-lasting cut flowers

This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties:

  • Florentine Silk: This abundant bloomer has a rare colour combination of blue and pink, excellent broad form and plenty of ruffles. It's easy to see why Florentine Silk has already won two prestigious awards from the American Iris Society. Grows 40" tall.

  • Redneck Girl: Its saturated dark red falls flare beneath dusky purple-red standards and blue beards to create a regal, velvety appearance. Large, 6" flowers open from 6-7 socketed buds on two-branch stems. Grows 36" tall.

  • I Pink I Can: Here's a gently ruffled, award-winning iris in a delicious shade of cotton candy pink that brings brio to any garden bed or border. Its red beards and deeper pink shading in the middle of the falls add to its sweetness. Yields eight flowers per stem. Grows 28" tall.

  • Fall Fiesta:Festive and vibrant, these ruffled flowers feature deep golden-yellow falls accented with rich amber-tan tones. Atop are elegant, snowy white standards with soft yellow highlights and glittering gold beards. Grows 36" tall.

  • Drifting: This bicolour variety possesses large, 6" blooms with billowy white standards and regally ruffled, royal blue falls. A past winner of the Florence International Iris Competition. Grows 40" tall.

  • Blackwater: A magnificent, award-winning black iris with traces of dark purple and dramatic ruffling that give it an alluring air of mystery. Its velvety petals give the dusky blooms a palpable texture. Grows 38" tall.
