Description
Of all the blue and purplish irises, this one is a big favorite. The upper petals and the falls are true, rich Royal Blue--a knockout.

Growing Bearded Irises These majestic flowers are surprisingly easy to grow, and actually require less attention than almost any other garden flowers. Your iris roots will arrive with the foliage "trimmed" from this spring's growth. You'll find the "root" is not really a bulb, but what is called a "rhizome"--an irregularly shaped bulbous root that grows at a right angle from the foliage. Leave the trimmed foliage as it is, and simply bury the rhizome with the top of it showing through the soil surface. Bearded irises grow best with the tops of their rhizomes exposed.

Next spring, new foliage and the flower spikes will sprout strongly from the rhizome. What's more, next summer, you'll notice the rhizome multiplying for even more flowers as years go by.

      Maybe I will be surprised next Summer, but the bulb is not a quality bulb, just one "fan" and pretty small.

      Comments about American Meadows Re-blooming Bearded Iris Sugar Blues:

      My Sugar Blues is not Blue at all. It's a light to medium lavender at best. NO BLUE at all to it. Very disapointed. Planted a variety of 4 iris from AM last fall. Two made it up & look healthy including the Sugar Blues. Sadly the Pink & Plum colors didn't over winter...all were planted together. Perhaps the rebloom period will bring flower stalks on the yellow. I kept the labels with the bulbs as planted too. It can be difficult to fall plant iris's up here though. Husband said it best...just ho hum not at all deep blue as expected and flowers are short lived compared to other iris in bloom too.

        If the tuber is too close to the surface squirrels might get to them or they may dry out. But when they bloom they are beautiful and a great gift for any iris lover.

          Unfortunately some of the Iris I purchased didn't bloom the first year. I was very happy with the one that did bloom, called Blue Suede Shoes. I would highly recommend this beautifull Iris and welcomed addition to my garden. (SKU0 33SIRIS)

            Not sure if it was the mild winter, but none of the Iris bulbs I purchased are coming up. I am disappointed at this time. I have seen other Irises blooming, but I don't even have the stems coming up.

              I could not believe the vivid color of this Iris! It was very eye catching and my neighbors stopped by to ask about it. I also enjoyed it reblooming in the fall.
