TALL BEARDED IRIS AWESOME ALEX

LARGE RHIZOMES, NOT PUNY LITTLE STARTS

FRAGRANT ON TALL STEMS.

USDA Zone 3 - 8

Plant them in a sunny spot in late summer/fall. The plants need well-drained soil and at least six hours of sunlight per day. Plant shallow, barely cover the rhizomes.

Use a low-nitrogen fertilizer and a soil pH slightly less than 7, which is neutral. Apply fertilizer twice a year; in early spring and just after bloom. Water only if it is extremely dry or after transplanting.

Give them room to breathe. Bearded iris require good air circulation. Plant them a minimum of 16 to 18 inches apart (less space for dwarf irises and more for taller varieties).

Do not mulch. Mulching retains moisture, and too much moisture will cause soft rot of the rhizomes.

Prune back the foliage in the fall. This will reduce the chances of overwintering pests and diseases.

Divide clumps of bearded iris every three to four years in the late summer.

I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING PAYPAL BECAUSE IT IS AN EBAY COMPANY AND NOT SAFE FOR A SELLER TO USE. I TAKE CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS ONLY. DUE TO NON-PAYING BUYERS LIKE GardenerGram I HAVE ENDED THE FREE SHIPPING AND NO LONGER TAKE ANY E - PAYMENTS. DONT LIKE IT? WELL YOU CAN USUALLY FIND IT ON EBAFIA FOR TWICE THIS PRICE OR HALF THIS SIZE.
