Description

24-36" tall x 18" wide. Montmartre Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) stands tall at 24-36", making it a perfect choice for a mid-to-late spring focal point. Named after Montmartre, an arts district in Paris, this attention-worthy Iris dazzles with ruffled petals of grey-rose standards, with wine-red downward petals. Butter yellow edges the petals giving them a lively, energetic presence. Beautiful in the garden, this award-winning Iris is a good grower with rich green strap-like foliage, the perfect backdrop for the 5" blooms. Plant them in groups of at least three rhizomes for best effect. Plant in well-draining soil with full to part sun exposure--make sure they get at least six hours of sun. Pinch back blooms as they fade and cut stems to 1-2" above soil when the flowering is finished. Beautiful as cut flowers, be sure to harvest some leaves to accompany the flowers. Cut the stems in the morning, when buds are about to open. Keep flowers out of direct light and enjoy the show!
