Description
Spectacular Batik represents a new technique in iris hybridizing, featuring a splash effect on all petals of a second color. Batiks deep purple with white splashes looks like a luscious blueberry sundae.

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 Bearded Iris Batik:

    I planted this fall 2012, so I was pleasantly surprised when It bloomed it's first spring. The color is just as pictured, rich and dark with splashes of white. What a showstopper!

          Comments about American Meadows Bearded Iris Batik:

          This iris was planted last fall and to my surprise it bloomed its first year. The plant is healthy and has had one bloom stalk with 4 - 5 flowers that bloom one after the other. It is in a raised bed that dries out quickly in the Texas Sun but it doesn't seem to mind. Would purchase again.
