The Northern Lights Bearded Iris Collection evokes the colors of the Aurora Borealis in the garden. The contrast of the light and deep blue petals of 'Dangerous Mood' will enchant you. Set them against the warm glow of 'Better Than Butter' and the shimmering starlight of 'Silverado'. These blooms bring the softest lavender hues imaginable to the garden. 'Edith Wolford' repeats the color theme in pale yellow standards and blue-violet falls that never fail to delight. For a dazzling finish, we've added the energized linework and royal purple hue of 'Breaking Point'. This collection makes a wonderful addition to evening gardens, rambling cottage plantings, and cutting gardens. Plant in a well-draining soil in full sun for optimal blooms. Set rhizomes 12-24 inches apart, allowing plenty of room for plants to spread over time. For best results plant shallow, with the top of the rhizome sitting at or just above the soil surface. Iris are deer and rabbit-resistant and remarkably easy to grow.

Dangerous Mood Bearded Iris
Silverado Bearded Iris
Edith Wolford Bearded Iris
