- CommentsThe bold red of this striking iris is the perfect color to make an eye-popping focal point or fresh arrangement. Plant them in groups of three or five, alone or alongside lighter, brighter blooms to give your landscape a professionally designed look. Ruffled irises of deep maroon feature bright yellow beards and a classic ruffled form. Flowers appear by the dozens during mid to late springon tall, 35-37" stems that stay upright in heavy rains and high winds. Reliably resistant to a range of diseases including leaf spot and crown rot, as well as garden pests like borers, aphids and wood lice. Very easy to maintain, too. Simply remove spent flower heads to promote more blooms.
