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

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 deep blue hue of 'Speed Limit Reblooming Bearded Iris' that has pristine white markings centered on the petals layered with a white beard. This collection makes a wonderful addition to evening gardens, rambling cottage plantings, and cutting gardens. Plant in 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.


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

Dangerous Mood Bearded Iris
Silverado Bearded Iris
Edith Wolford Bearded Iris
Better Than Butter Bearded Iris
Speed Limit Reblooming Bearded Iris

*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.
