We've just finished a simple, clear explanation on the various Iris groups used in gardens...from the big Bearded (or German) Irises everyone knows, plus Japanese (Butterfly), Siberian, Louisiana and the bulb-rooted Dutch Iris shown here. Some are planted in spring, some in summer, and some in fall. All are easy to grow, and now with this new article
, you'll be able to keep them all straight. The new document also gives a bit of the history of the Iris, named after the Goddess of the Rainbow, and long a symbol of royalty. Enjoy.
