Plant Information

Harvest of Memories is well-named, recalling sunny happy days. This one is a mass of bright yellow for fantastic highlights in the garden, and a spectacle in a vase. Imagine it in bloom with the blues.

Growing Bearded Irises These majestic flowers are surprisingly easy to grow, and actually require less attention than almost any other garden flowers. Your iris roots will arrive with the foliage "trimmed" from this spring's growth. You'll find the "root" is not really a bulb, but what is called a "rhizome"--an irregularly shaped bulbous root that grows at a right angle from the foliage. Leave the trimmed foliage as it is, and simply bury the rhizome with the top of it showing through the soil surface. Bearded irises grow best with the tops of their rhizomes exposed.

Next spring, new foliage and the flower spikes will sprout strongly from the rhizome. What's more, next summer, you'll notice the rhizome multiplying for even more flowers as years go by.

    Comments about American Meadows Reblooming Bearded Iris Harvest of Memories:

    Health issues prevented planting iris in my garden last fall. I had to place them in pots on my deck. Iris bloomed again week of Thanksgiving. So encouraging to see a beautiful yellow blossom at Thanksgiving - especially when not feeling well.Already has a vigorous start for this year.

              Q & A

              Plant With These:

              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).

              Find Your Planting Zone:
