Bearded Iris Perennial
Bearded Iris, or the Iris germanica, is a perennial flower grown in the northern hemispheres of Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In the U.S., its hardiness zones are 3 through 10. The bulb gets the name from its distinctive look caused by its fuzzy downward-facing petals, which resemble a beard.
The flower comes in many colors, from white to light purple to blue to deep purple, and every color except the brightest reds. The flower bloom has six petals, three pointing upward and three pointing downward. There are two cultivars, one blooming in the spring and the second blooming in spring and fall. These twice-a-year-blooming plants are called remontant irises. For year-round color, choose flowers from each cultivar.
Bearded Iris Come in Many Colors and Brighten up Any Landscaping Area
The longer blades can sit straight up, or they may fall. The leaf color goes from green to blue-green.
The Bearded Iris thrives in zones 3 through 9. They benefit significantly from going dormant in the freezing winter weather of areas that experience full winters. They should get full sun for six hours each day.
