    Comments about American Meadows Reblooming Bearded Iris Mother Earth:

    The picture here does not represent the stunning colors of this Iris. I will include a picture in my review. This iris has done quite well in my border with the others. I haven't had to cut out any mushy spots in the spring, so it's a winner in my book.

        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).
