Raven Girl Bearded Iris, like the iridescence of a raven's wing, arrives with purple-black splendor in the late spring garden. The standards (upward petals) shimmer in deep purple, almost black, and the falls (downward petals) are a magnificent jet black. Beautifully ruffled and a heavy bloomer this is one that must be tried! Deer and rabbit resistant. (Iris germanica)

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
24-39" tall x 18" wide. Raven Girl Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) shimmers in the late spring garden with broad ruffled petals of purple-black standards with near-black falls. With over 63 years of breeding behind it, Raven Girl has almost unbelievable color but also blooms with 8-12 buds per stem for a long season of bloom. It's a flowering beauty that will become a welcome highlight to the garden. At 24-39" tall, Raven Girl can stand on its own in a grouping or become a dramatic element in a mixed planting. Plant with Oriental Poppies, Peonies, Ornamental Grasses, and always, other Bearded Iris, for a striking and unusual effect. Great as dramatic cut flowers too, the heavy bearing stems will bloom for weeks in a vase. Harvest stems in the morning when the buds have begun to swell. Plant rhizomes (bulbs) in well-drained soil in a location with full sun to part-shade. Keep the top of the rhizome even or just above the soil. Water well, but don't overwater. Bearded Iris don't like wet feet.
