Large, elegant sun-loving blooms appear on strong stalks for a short but showy season. They gently spread from rhizomes and can be divided easily in the fall.
Some varieties rebloom. Heralding in spring are the distinctive dwarf bearded Iris, often times referred to as the dwarf version of the Tall Bearded Iris. Dwarf Iris is one of the earliest Iris to bloom, flowering here in April and May. Fall is one of the best times for planting for better flowering performance in the spring.
