Japanese Iris Mix

Blooming in early to midsummer, about a month after the German and Siberian iris bloom, the Japanese Iris Mix is great for extending the iris season. Elegant and large, 5-in. flowers come in shades of blues, purples, whites and bi-colors. Because Japanese Iris grow well in moist soil and even shallow, standing water, they're a favorite for planting along the edge of water, such as near a pond or creek. They're especially impressive when planted in groups or en masse. Japanese iris prefer acidic soil. Grows 24-48 in. tall. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 4-8.

  • CommentsGlorious, huge flowers resemble orchids and float on long, sturdy stems. Carefree plant blooms early summer, after most other irises have finished. Rich colors and elegant form add a new dimension to borders and waterside plantings. Gardens and beds get a lively burst of color with this exceptional mix of lovely Japanese Iris. Large 5" double blooms emerge in a blend of blues, purples, whites and even bicolors, giving the mid-season landscape a touch of much-needed flair. Perfect for planting near the water's edge, these unique beauties love to get their feet wet. They also make outstanding additions to cutting gardens and borders where moist soil is plentiful. Acidic soil makes these beautiful iris come alive in midsummer.
