USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

Our Fragrant Bearded Iris Collection is a dedication to a flower's most lovable traits – sweet smells and beautiful colors. Early to mid-spring begins with 'Peach Jam's' soft peach petals dashed, striped, and splotched with magenta. Early-to-late spring greets you with the light fragrance of 'Better Than Butter,' with white standards edged in yellow (upright petals) and brushed yellow falls (downward petals), and an orange beard. Following 'Better Than Butter'... Like a bright summer sky, 'Sea of Love' features sky-blue petals with a matching beard. 'Sugar Blues' brings a soothing dreamy feel to the mix with wisteria blue petals and a white beard. When you see the giant blooms of 'Velvet Voyage', you'll know the season is in full swing. 'Velvet Voyage' anchors the collection together with rich purple petals. Our Fragrant Bearded Iris collection includes three reblooming varieties. Enjoy a grand finale when 'Peach Jam' "Sea of Love" and 'Sugar Blues' return with delicate scents in early fall.

Plant in full sun and well-draining soil to encourage the most luscious blooms. To allow bearded irises room to multiply year after year, space rhizomes 12-24 inches apart, buried so that the top rhizome shows through the soil. The roots will grow perpendicular to the stems, spreading out across the soil.

The Fragrant Bearded Iris Collection includes 5 or 15 bulbs (rhizomes) total, featuring one or three of each:

'Better Than Butter' Bearded Iris (early-to-late spring) 
'Peach Jam' Reblooming Bearded Iris (early-to-mid spring and again in late summer-to-early fall) 
'Sea of Love' Reblooming Bearded Iris (late spring and again in early-to-mid fall)
'Sugar Blues' Reblooming Bearded Iris (late spring and again in early-to-mid fall)

'Velvet Voyage' Bearded Iris (mid-to-late spring)

*Not all plants will be in bloom at the same time, as depicted on the illustration. Plants are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden/collection design.
