Plant Information

Illuminate your garden with this bright-orange beauty! Edgefield Glow, like all Bearded Iris, is extremely easy to grow and multiplies as the years go by.

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.

These did glow. The stood out very well with their light orangish color. Mine were not a dark orange but that's fine. They did kind of glow and drew peoples eyes from afar. Very healthy, sturdy, and a lot of flowers per stalk, about 8-9. Would like to have these intermingled with a pastel blue bearded iris.

disappointing plant. Had really bad luck most of the rizomes that I bought on this order. Savannah Sunset gave me two blooms. Rustler was spectacular; however, only one bloom. Tour de France was fairly productive and reliable, but not spectacular. The rest of the tubers ( seems that there were eight or ten of them )did nothing at all except grow very large leaves.

                i use these as border plants and they are very easy to grow but in extreme hot climates it prefers some shade or else the flowers get crispy and don't bloom as they should.

                    I have two iris beds and this year when the Edgefield Glow bloomed it was beautiful. It is planted next to a few dark purple bearded iris's (which I also purchased from you) and they both were tremendous and really added a punch to the iris bed.

                    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).
