Description
Blueberry Bliss gets its name from deep, navy-blue blooms. A dramatic statement both in the garden and cut for bouquets.

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 fell in love with this color the first time I saw it. The plant is growing nicely, and it bloomed this summer. Since it is a new plant, in a new flowerbed that made me very happy.

              this rhizome, like the blueberry bliss, was to small and dried out to save. I have many iris' at three homes thriving.
