This rather handsome plant has moderate sized flowers with burgundy red standards and white falls broadly banded with burgundy. The colour gently ekes out onto the white. The beards are bronze gold and the petals are very ruffled. Early to mid season.
Bearded irises need to be planted with the rhizome, or root, just above the soil. This is because the rhizome needs to be baked by the sun in order to form flowers. Make sure that there is not too much competition from surrounding plants and remove any weeds.
