Plant Information

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.

      I planted this last summer and it quickly established itself in my garden. It actually first bloomed in November because of the high temperatures and again this May. Its tall and gorgeous and adds lovely color.

          Comments about American Meadows Re-Blooming Bearded Iris Violet Turner:

          One of 3 varieties planted in fall. All seemed to take well in fall. One even bloomed in fall. All 3 grew up in spring, 2 seemed very healthy and one boomed very nicely in spring. This variety began drying leaves after about a month and leaves broke off at base. Not sure the problem. Found ribosomes rotting. Other annuals in area growing well.

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
