Iris Bearded Carnaby

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



With standards of dusky pink French silk and falls of draping mulberry velvet, Iris ‘Carnaby’ is a captivating sensation. Spires of plump, pointed buds burst into broad blooms, gradually opening from the base upwards. The voluptuous, billowing petals form flouncing silhouettes against sword-shaped, semi evergreen foliage. Fuzzy, tangerine ‘beards’ at the centre of each flower give the Bearded Iris its name and are packed with pollen, enticing a multitude of pollinators to your garden. Thriving on free-draining soil in a sunny position, ‘Carnaby’ will be a welcome addition to herbaceous borders, patios, and along south-facing walls for a floriferous display.

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.
