Rhizome arrived promptly, well packaged and healthy with many leaves. Planted immediately (late April - zone 7) and it thrived beautifully yet no flowers (assume due to transplant shock) — happily surprised with 9 huge buds in mid-September and so very thrilled and delighted!!!

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun to light shade. Bearded Irises prefer well-drained, fertile, slightly alkaline to slightly acidic soils. Plant shallow, with top of rhizome exposed above the soil line. A light mulch may be used, if applied in a thin layer around the plants, but not covering the rhizomes. Fertilize with granular bulb food in early spring and after flowering; scratch into the top inch or two of the soil. Divide plants every three years, in August.
