These are great! I saw these in someones landscape last fall and admired the foliage not knowing that they were an Iris that would bloom in the spring! They look interesting all year long! I could only find the green/yellow version locally so voila...Romence Gardens hooked me up. Plants came healthy and large. Thank you.
Iris pallida 'Albovariegata'
- Tall bearded Iris with blue-violet flowers in late spring
- Interesting green & white striped foliage
- More shade tolerant than most other Irises
Iris pallida 'Albovariegata' is a beautiful plant for the landscape with its variegated foliage and lilac blue flowers with yellow beards. The sword-like leaves are green with silvery white stripes and add interest even when it is not in flower. The fragrant blooms make great cut flowers and look wonderful when planted in mass.
Uses: Borders, Edging, Landscapes, Cut Flower
Critter Resistance: Deer, Rabbit
Notable Features: Drought Tolerant, Fragrant
Growth Habit: Upright
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.
