The flowers and colors in our Hawaiian Sunset Bearded Collection will transport you to an island paradise every time you visit your garden. At the heart is 'Summer Olympics,' and just like the sun, this cheery yellow flower rises early, and reblooms reliably through summer and early fall. The saturated colors in these blossoms will remind you of a changing sky. Like all Bearded Iris, this sunny collection is easy to grow, deer resistant, and will multiply each season.

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 Hawaiian Sunset Bearded Iris Collection shines with all the color and luminosity of its namesake. It's only natural that this collection starts with 'Summer Olympics,' a sunshine-yellow iris with a fuzzy yellow beard and a sweet fragrance. 'Summer Olympics' rises in early spring and reblooms reliably to brighten your garden through summer and early fall. As its name suggests, 'Dawn Eternal' beams with lemon yellow standards (upright petals) reaching out from violet-purple falls (downward petals). 'Frimousse' energizes like a refreshing summer smoothie with bright peach-orange standards (upright petals), red falls (downward petals) and vivid orange beards. 'Autumn Reisling' blooms with orange ruffled petals with a hint of yellow, glowing like sun-soaked clouds at happy hour after a long day on the beach. When the sun dips below the horizon, the evening sky takes on a warm violet hue. You can find this luminous color in the warm purple petals of the 'Vicar' Bearded Iris. 'Vicar' is notable for ultraviolet beards, 3-branch stems with 8-10 buds each, and 7” blossoms extending like an endless summer night. Flower heights will range from about 24 inches to 40 inches, with 'Summer Olympics' on the slighter side, and 'Dawn Eternal' on the taller end. Count on long-lasting cut flower arrangements when you bring these bold colors indoors.

Plant the Hawaiian Sunset collection in full sun and well-draining soil to encourage the brightest blooms. To encourage bearded irises to multiply, space rhizomes 12-24 inches apart, buried so that the top of the rhizome shows through the soil. The roots will grow perpendicular (at a right angle) to the stems.

Our Hawaiian Sunset Bearded Iris Collection includes 5 or 15 bulbs total, featuring one or three of each:
'Summer Olympics' Reblooming Bearded Iris – (mid-spring, 31” tall)
'Dawn Eternal' Bearded Iris – (late spring to late summer, 40” tall)
'Frimousse' Bearded Iris – (late spring to early summer, 33” tall)
'Autumn Reisling' Bearded Iris – (mis-to-late spring,40” tall)
'Vicar' Bearded Iris – (late spring, 38” tall)

*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.
