You’ll find tips on growing and caring for your Bearded Iris, including the proper techniques to ensure prime growth and how to give your Iris all the attention they need and deserve.

For example: “When do I plant bearded iris?”

For best results, Iris should be planted in July, August or September. It’s imperative that the roots of newly planted Iris be well-established before the growing season ends.  In areas with hot summers and mild winters, September or October planting may be preferred. We strongly suggest Iris be planted at least six weeks before the first hard frost in your area.
