Iris Bearded Braithwaite
Iris Bearded Braithwaite.
Palest lavender standards with purple falls.
Bearded Iris require an open position in full sun to thrive.
A bed of garden soil, enriched with organic matter such as aged manure and compost provides the ideal growing medium.
Plant the rhizomes 30cm apart in early autumn or spring, with their tops left exposed to light, above the surface of the ground.
Flamboyant, bearded blooms flower in early summer above sword-like foliage.
Ensure rhizomes remain exposed to the sun year-round which will ensure flowers the following year.
Clumps can be divided every 3 years to promote healthy growth.
