Description

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 sunsoaked 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 one inch higher, at an angle, keeping the stems under water as you cut.

  • Tolerates a wide range of soils.
  • Pest and disease resistant.


  • This collection includes 1 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.

  • Edith Wolford: A picturesque bicolour with abundant blooms! Features fantastically ruffled, light canary yellow standards over medium blue-violet falls. Grows 35" tall.

  • Dusky Challenger: Rich, deep purple ruffles make these beautiful, gigantic blooms a must-have for fine bouquets and breathtaking back borders. Grows 38−39" 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 32−34" tall.

  • Drifting: First place winner in the 2014 Florence International Iris Competition! Billowy, white standards float atop royal blue, elegantly ruffled falls. Grows 40" 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.

  • Wild Irish Rose: A petite lass to grace your garden! Intensely hued, orchid-pink blooms are accented by vibrant orange beards and shine in the summer sun. Grows 33" tall.
