(36" tall x 12" wide) 'Valentino' Bearded Iris is striking with luscious scarlet standards (upright petals) that almost float over the darker red falls (lower petals). With lemon-yellow beards and throat, Valentino is sweetly fragrant and lovely planted where it can shine against the greens in a perennial bed. Create a focal point by planting a group where they can show off near an entry, along a deck, or any sunny spot that you like. Plant with Peonies, Delphinium, and Salvia for even more color. Plant the rhizomes in average soil with good drainage, just above the soil line and water as needed. Once established these hardy plants are drought-tolerant, and low maintenance. As flowers fade, trim spent blooms and cut finished stems close to the ground. The sword-shaped foliage will continue to add vertical interest. Deer and rabbit resistant.
