Iris for Descanso Gardens

Irises are available in many species, varieties, hybrids and types. Size ranges from dwarf to tall. There are many iris collectors, and several organizations that focus on the different types and sizes. Currently we have only received recommendations for Bearded and Dutch Iris.
Check out the American Iris Society to start finding out more about Irises.

TALL BEARDED IRIS

Bearded Iris (Iris) is a perennial growing from rhizome. It may also be called German Iris.
Irises do well in borders or in special cutting beds, and they make wonderful flower arrangements.
They come in almost every shade imaginable and many have a pleasant scent.
They bloom in spring, and some rebloom in fall if growing conditions are right.
There are several catalog sources for the named cultivars, which come in many colors.
