Iris Bearded Langport Wren

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Like a glass of full-bodied claret, the intense blackberry-burgundy blooms of Iris ‘Langport Wren’ are to be deliberately savoured. An outstanding intermediate-blooming type belonging to the Langport series, this Bearded Iris has an extraordinary, musky scent of dark chocolate orange. The ebony-purple blooms are a perfect foil to paler palettes and harmonise beautifully with rich, velvety colour schemes. Thriving in a hot, sunny location on well-drained soil, ‘Langport Wren’ makes a dramatic addition to herbaceous borders and large containers. This vigorous variety produces an abundance of flowers, and readily forms a clump which will increase in size and magnificence each year.

Care Guide

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.
