Dial up the color vibrancy with ‘Off Topic’ Bearded Iris. Reminiscent of an exotic orchid flower, this mid-spring bloomer has a dramatic presence with large blooms and a delicate fragrance. The cloud-like grey-blue standards seem to float over deep purple falls with white veined hafts. Tangerine beards light the center with a pop of color. Deer and rabbit resistant, easy-to-grow, and pollinator friendly. Great for cut flowers too! (Iris germanica)

Growing Bearded Irises: Named for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Irises are majestic flowers that have been developed into an amazing array of colors, with upright sword-shaped foliage that adds elegant texture to the garden even after flowers have passed. “Standards” are the upright petals, and “falls” are the lower petals. Bearded Irises are surprisingly easy to grow, with late spring blooms that bridge the gap from spring into summer. They are deer resistant, rabbit resistant, and drought-resistant, making them a great choice for low-maintenance gardens. Bearded Irises grow vigorously from rhizomes - an irregularly shaped bulbous root that grows at a right angle from the foliage. Over time, the rhizomes will spread and multiply, delivering even more Bearded Iris blooms to your garden as the years pass.
