24-36" tall x 18" wide. The ruffled petals of ‘In Living Color’ dance in a summer breeze and the soft pastels of its golden and rose-violet petals make it a perfect backdrop for a perennial bed. Try it with, Penstemon, Agastache, and Salvia, as these flowers will bloom as the Bearded Iris flowers fade, adding color to the foliage. Lightly fragrant, this Beardie is a prolific bloomer and is deer and rodent resistant and a pollinator favorite. A full sun location in average, but well-drained soil is all you need to enjoy these cheery midseason blooms.
