36-48" tall x 18" wide. Absolute Treasure Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) wakes up the mid-to-late spring garden with soft shades of pastel blues and whites. Absolute Treasure's white beards are tipped in gold; the perfect landing pad for its favorite pollinator, the bumblebee. Harmonizing with other spring-blooming Bearded Iris, its tall stature of 36-48" makes it perfect at the back or center of a flower bed. Consider it with tall ornamental grasses, where the blossoms can pop like bits of sky in the foliage. Plant them in well-draining soil in a sun to part shade location. A bit of shade will preserve the delicate color, but Bearded Iris should get at least six hours of sun. Beautiful as cut flowers too, plant extra for cutting! Cut the stems in the early part of the day 1-2" above the ground, just as the buds are opening. For best life, place them in a container of room temperature water and re-cut in the water about an inch higher. Pinch off blooms as they fade and enjoy the progression of flowers.
