Our Fragrant Bearded Iris Collection is a dedication to a flower's most lovable traits – sweet smells and beautiful colors. Mid spring greets you with the light fragrance of 'Florentine Silk,' with soft pink standards (upright petals) lavender falls (downward petals), and a pink-orange beard. Following 'Florentine Silk' is crisp-white 'Immortality' an exceptional beauty with creamy-yellow beards. Like a bright summer sky, 'Absolute Treasure' features cloud-like white petals edged in pale blue, with a sunny yellow beard. 'I'm Back' brings a pop of jewel tones to the mix with amethyst standards (upright petals), velvety plum falls (downward petals), and a golden beard. When you see the giant blooms of 'All About Spring, you'll know the season is in full swing. 'All About Spring' ties the collection together with pastel purple petals, soft yellow ruffles, and a bright gold beard. Our Fragrant Bearded Iris collection includes two reblooming varieties. Enjoy a grand finale when 'Immortality' and 'I'm Back' return with bright colors and delicate scents in early fall. Flower heights will range from about 24 inches to 40 inches, with 'Immortality' on the slighter side, and 'Absolute Treasure' on the taller end. Irises produce sturdy foliage, and thick stems make for lovely, long-lasting cut flowers.
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:
'Forentine Silk' Bearded Iris (mid-to-late spring, 40” tall)
'Immortality' Reblooming Bearded Iris (late spring and again in early-to-mid fall, 30” tall)
