Blueberry Filly Bearded Iris, like an abstract painting, beckons us to look again and again. Violet-purple, the color of blueberries, saturates the petals while silver-white streaks come and go, playing gently with color and shadow. This is an elegant mid-to-late spring bloomer, at home in a cutting garden, garden bed or along a path. 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
18-24" tall x 18" wide. Blueberry Filly Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) parades through the mid-to-late spring garden in shades of violet-purple, flecked and striped in silvery white. White beards with a touch of gold add a furry texture to the flowers. These intermediate-height Bearded Iris, at 18-24" tall, stand on sturdy stems and blend well with other Bearded Iris. Plant some early season, mid, and late season Iris for a non-stop season of color. They are happy in average soil, but it must have good drainage to prevent root rot. Plant them so that the top of the rhizome (bulb) is just above soil level, where there are good sun and air circulation. Your Bearded Iris will grow and multiply, providing years of big, colorful blooms. Every 3-4 years as the plants multiply, gently dig up the rhizomes in August to divide them and re-plant, trade, or giveaway. Bumblebees love Bearded Iris, and Bearded Iris provides the perfect landing pad with their fuzzy doorsteps. Watching pollinators in action is a fun way for gardeners of all ages to appreciate the role flowers play in our gardens.
