Description

Colourful Iris at Unbeatable Savings!
Did you know that iris is the Greek word for rainbow? It's true! And since there are seven essential colours that comprise a rainbow, it's only fitting that our Spring Spectrum Collection brings you seven exceptionally colourful varieties.

Colourful and Carefree!
Irises are some of the most stunning perennials you can plant-and also some of the easiest to grow! In late summer or early fall, simply plant your rhizomes 24" apart in sun-soaked or partly shaded, well-drained soil. Then, get set to watch a kaleidoscope of hues burst forth in mid to late spring.

Once planted, your bearded irises will be remarkably self-sufficient, giving you so much fuss-free beauty. Winter hardy in zones 4−9, irises multiply annually and will return year after year with greater abundance and more colour intensity.

A Cut Above the Rest
Irises are not only must-haves in the garden, they make long-lasting cut flowers, too! For the best bouquets, cut your irises early in the day when the buds are just opening. Place them in a bucket of tepid water and re-cut the stems 1" higher, at an angle, keeping the stems under water as you cut.

No matter how you enjoy your irises, one thing is for sure-you will not be disappointed when you order from Breck's!

Iris Anatomy 101
With literally thousands of tall bearded iris varieties 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 multi-coloured.

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!

Haft: The top part of the falls, where it connects to the rest of the flower. Hafts often have special markings not seen on the rest of the flower.

This collection includes one each of the following varieties:

  • Disco Music: This apricot-orange sensation has been delighting iris collectors since the 1970s and has stood the test of time thanks to vivid colouring and an easy-care nature. Grows 34−36" tall.

  • Alpine Journey: Simply beautiful! This true bicolour iris will light up the landscape. Snow-white standards are a refreshing contrast to the broad base of golden-yellow falls. Grows 38" tall.

  • Night Owl: This dusky iris is aptly named because of its near-black, violetblue flowers. The falls are even darker than the standards. Grows 38" tall.

  • Raptor Red: Iridescent, ruby-red colouring deepens to maroon on broad, slightly flaring falls. Golden-tipped beards add an extra spark to this spicy, floriferous variety. Grows 31−34" tall.

  • Livin' Easy : Icy white standards are flushed violet up the midrib and violet falls become paler around the orange beards. Slightly fragrant blooms are nicely ruffled. Grows 35" tall.

  • Fiesta in Blue : Celebrate spring with giant, 6" flowers in an intense blue hue, highlighted by yellow-white beards. Blooms are energized by bouncy ruffles and excellent flower form. Grows 40" tall.

  • Concertina: Lush, rose-pink blooms are highlighted with soft blue beards and create a pastel palette in any garden. Matures at a modest height, making it an ideal front-border plant. Grows 27" tall.
