Plant Information

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 Bearded Iris Red Hawk:

        I am a master gardener and have been growing iris for 40 years. The quality of these plants, all 4 that I ordered, was so pitiful that I would not have given them away, let alone sell them. Tiny rhizomes, shriveled up and dried out roots, and no growth on them at all. When I complained about it, I was sent a replacement for them. They were exactly the same poor quality. I will NOT be ordering again.

            The ONLY bad news about this is the fact it isn't re-blooming.

            Comments about American Meadows Bearded Iris Red Hawk:

            this iris never came through the ground! it was planted in a bed where many iris flourish. All are in bloom now, but not even a green spike from this one.

            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:
