Ooh-la-la. The Berry Spice Bearded Iris Collection's simmering hues are sure to ignite the garden. Few blooms shine brighter than the vivid orange 'Edgefield Glow' Bearded Iris. Each successive blossom in this combo works to accent the next. The orange hues of 'Edgefield Glow' are echoed in the flaring falls of 'Cheetah Cheese' and showy beards of 'Care to Dance'. Mulberry hues run from blossom to blossom in the ruffled falls of 'Care to Dance' and dreamy skirts of 'Montmartre'. A glass of velvety cabernet finishes this feast for the senses in the plush red petals of 'Valentino'. Give these beauties well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine to thrive. Space bulbs (rhizomes) 12 to 24 inches apart when planting to give plants plenty of room to grow and spread. For best results, bury the rhizome shallow enough that the top of the rhizome sits just above the soil surface.
The Berry Spice Bearded Iris Collection includes 5 or 15 bulbs (rhizomes) total, featuring one or three of each:
Edgefield Glow Bearded Iris
Care to Dance Bearded Iris
Valentino Bearded Iris
Montmartre Bearded Iris
Cheetah Cheese Bearded Iris
