(38" tall x 12-24" wide) 'Deschutes' Bearded Iris has softly
ruffled blue petals with purple-veining. At 38" tall, it’s a great
fit for a perennial bed where it complements the shapes and colors of Peonies, Lupine,
Allium, and Oriental Poppies. Place in a sunny spot in with free draining soil.
Plant the rhizomes slightly above the soil line, and water well to keep moist
as the plants establish. Cut or snap off spent blooms and cut finished stalks
off at the base. Enjoy the vertical sword-like foliage as added garden texture.
Deer and rabbit resistant.
