32-34" tall x 18" wide. Richly colored, Bearded Iris ‘Ancient Echoes’ greets us with lush burgundy-black falls edged in peach, topped with a golden crown of ruffled petals. Large bloomed and fragrant, it flowers in mid-season. Remove spent blooms as they expire and cut the stems at the base when all the blooms have faded. Plant in average, well-drained soil in a sunny location. When the rhizomes become crowded (3-4 years) dig them up at season’s end (summer) - clean, divide and re-plant the healthiest rhizomes, or share with friends and spread the glory! Bearded Iris are low-care, critter resistant and pollinator friendly garden favorites.
