Description
Mariposa Skies represents a very popular, quite formal type of Bearded Iris. The hybridizer has managed to keep the top set of petals pure white, while the falls are solid blue. There is no mixing of the two colors. This is master hybridizing, and the result is an elegant, stand-out flower.

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.

        Comments about American Meadows Re-blooming Bearded Iris Mariposa Skies:

        I planted my bulbs last spring but didn't have any blooms until this spring. Worth the wait! The flowers are large and showy on 3-ft high stems. The white looks as fluffy as a cloud and is atop the deep blue petals. Absolutely beautiful!
