    Plant Devil's Playground Intermediate Bearded Iris for a two-toned contrast. Dark purple ruffled blooms gradually fade to creamy yellow as it reaches the center. Pair with other yellow colored blooms to further extend the contrasting appeal.

    Bearded Iris blooms in late spring, and grows best in full sun. Plant Bearded Iris in soil that drains well. Bearded Iris are long lasting perennials that will return to your garden for 5 or more years. They benefit from being divided every 5-7 years to help ensure they will continue to flower.

    When to plant Bearded Iris?

    Bearded Iris rhizomes should be planted in late summer to early fall.

    How to plant Bearded Iris rhizomes?

    Plant Bearded Iris rhizomes 1-2" deep with part of the rhizome showing above ground level. The left-over foliage from the prior season that is attached to the rhizome will be showing above ground. Before winter arrives, the dry foliage will fade away.

    Where to plant Bearded Iris?

    Bearded Iris should be planted in full to part sun. Plant Bearded Iris in soil that drains well, as Bearded Iris do not like to sit in wet soil. Plant Bearded Iris towards the middle to back of the planting area with summer blooming plants in front that will cover the foliage once the Iris are finished blooming.

    Bearded Iris after care

    Approximately 6 weeks after the iris are finished blooming cut the leaves back to 6" from the ground. In fall clean up debris around the iris to prevent disease and insects for the next season.

    Cons:
    These rhizomes were harvested and packaged overseas - I guess Holland. They arrive in a sock of plastic netting and are very clean - and quite dry. Before planting the iris, I soaked it for several hours in cool water.

    I purchased around a dozen rhizomes and they were all similarly packaged. They've been in the ground for about 3 weeks and, while it is now mid-October, they've gotten greener and have grown a bit. They are clearly viable and are busy establishing roots in advance of winter.

    The only downside is that these were, by several weeks, the latest arriving irises that I bought in 2020. They were a week away from missing September entirely. Things will work out for my zone, but I still would have preferred an early September arrival.
