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
36-48" tall x 18" wide. But Darling Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) adds a touch of elegance to the late spring garden with its tall, graceful flowers and vertical foliage. Big blossoms of apricot standards (upwards petals) lightly brushed on the outside with lilac purple, are surrounded by lush, deep purple, ruffled falls (downward petals) edged in lavender. It's a stunning flower, at home in the garden and vase. Growing from 36-48" tall, plant But Darling as a garden focal point or mix it into a bed where it will tower like a sentinel over the late spring garden. Tall Alliums make a cheery companion! Plant at least three rhizomes (bulbs) for best effect and be prepared to stake the tall flower stalks if needed. Plant in well-draining soil in a sunny spot with the tops of the rhizomes even with the soil level. Keep moist, but be careful not to over water. Deer and rabbit resistant, this easy-care Bearded Iris will bring a smile to visitors.
