(34" tall x 18-24" wide) 'Variegated Gold' Bearded Iris is a garden
favorite with three-season foliage striped in gold and green. The late-day sun
lights up this striking foliage. Topped with graceful, fragrant, lavender-colored
flowers, this elegant perennial is a perfect choice planted behind lower-growing
Geranium or Catmint, or in front of Foxglove, Ornamental Grasses, and Peonies. For
maximum color, plant in groups of 3, 12-24"
apart. Plant rhizomes in enriched, freely draining soil, slightly above the
soil line. Water well, then water as needed through flowering. Remove spent
blooms, and when the stem is finished flowering, cut it off at the base. Over
the years, Bearded Iris will multiply and become a low maintenance, deer and
rabbit resistant start of the garden.
