Description
Here's an iris no garden should be without. Even blacker than the famous black tulip, Queen of the Night, Night Ruler glistens with dark magic among other flowers and plants. Your neighbors will think you're a master gardener with such a rare-looking beauty in your flowers, but in reality, its requires no special care. Enjoy!

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 Night Ruler - Single Rhizome:

        I planted these three along with several other irises and not a single one of them came up this spring even though all the other irises that I planted are doing great. I was very excited as the photos are beautiful and they would have been an excellent addition to the garden.
