Description
Spectacular Batik represents a new technique in iris hybridizing, featuring a splash effect on all petals of a second color. Batiks deep purple with white splashes looks like a luscious blueberry sundae.

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.

            Comments about American Meadows Bearded Iris Batik - Single Rhizome:

            Oh my gosh! These are so beautiful! I love Irises and these are gorgeous! They make a beautiful splash of color in my garden and I love to cut them and bring them in to enjoy in my home. The cut flowers do not last long but I don't mind. This is a very unique color and I and so pleased with the rhizomes I received. Very healthy and a good size. I recommend these Irises for your garden or patio container.

              The splashy color of this iris got many comments. It was beautiful. I'm looking forward to it blooming again this spring.
