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 already growing in a small pot, with this spring’s growth beginning. When you plant, 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. Simply plant the iris as it is, with the top of it showing through the soil surface. Bearded irises grow best with the tops of their rhizomes exposed. Once planted, new foliage and the flower spikes will sprout strongly from the rhizome. What’s more, this summer, you'll notice the rhizome multiplying for even more flowers as years go by.

About Me Avid Gardener
The iris is part of my iris section in the garden and it is outstanding!
The flower is truly beautiful but the color is not quite as seen in the photo. I love the huge size and the plant will always have a special spot in the garden. Now I have to find one with the color I thought I ordered.

Color is gorgeous, but bloom time is under two weeks. Have had great success with almost all irises, but this one and the Batik have not multiplied. I finally relegated this to the back of a container garden, where the color is effective and the months of simple greenery provide a nice backdrop.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
