Description

Wow! The luscious orange color, large flowers, and re-blooming, too...what more can you ask? Orange Harvest has it all. The flowers are large and substantive, and you'll have them in late spring at iris time, and again late in the summer or fall.

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 already growing in a small pot, with this spring’s growth beginning. When you plant, 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. Simply plant the iris as it is, with the top of it showing through the soil surface. Bearded irises grow best with the tops of their rhizomes exposed. Once planted, new foliage and the flower spikes will sprout strongly from the rhizome. Even more, this summer, you'll notice the rhizome multiplying for even more flowers as years go by. Plant the Orange Harvest Bearded Iris in a sunny spot in your garden, accompanied with any other sun-loving plant. We recommend trying the Orange Harvest with a blue Bearded Iris for a bold, colorful contrast. Orange Harvest makes a wonderful cut flower and will add beauty outside in the garden, or inside when placed in a vase. You won’t feel guilty cutting a few blooms once in a while, as this Iris will bloom more than once each season!
