Description
Mother Earth brings extra ruffles to the bearded iris garden. Ruffled falls in pink, plus ruffled upper petals in white.

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 Mother Earth:

This Iris is now one of my favorites. The colors are much more vivid than in the picture on the product page. I kept the tag with the Iris, so I'm pretty sure this is the right one. I'm including pictures with my review for comparison. Anyway, It's really a stand out and I might have to buy a few more for that pop of color amongst the soft lavenders.
