Mariposa Skies Reblooming German Iris

Description
Breathtaking iris features large flowers with very pale blue-white standards flushed with medium blue-violet midribs and deep blue-violet falls. Has a deliciously sweet scent.
Product Details

  • Height33 inches.
  • Spread12 - 24 inches.
  • Spacing12 - 24 inches

  • FoliageGlaucous-green, sword like fans of stiff upright leaves with some dying back in colder climates in winter.
  • Flower FormFlowers are fan-shaped, with three drooping petals called falls and three upright petals called standards.
  • ColorVery pale blue standards flushed with deep blue-violet at the midribs. Its medium blue-violet falls lighten at their margins, highlighted by gentle ruffling.
  • BloomsEarly summer, reblooms late summer to fall.
  • Soil RequirementsWell-drained soil.
  • Growth RateModerate growth rate.
  • PruningRemove spent flower stems after blooming. In late fall, cut back foliage to 6 inch fans. Clean plant debris before winter to prevent borers overwintering.
  • CommentsLarge, ruffled flowers of pale blue and rich violet-blue open in abundance in late spring, then come again later in the summer. This is because Mariposa Skies is such a vigorous grower that it produces blooming size shoots during its growing season, not just from last year's growth. You'll get an added bonus of fragrance from these blooms, too!
  • Botanical NameIris germanica 'Mariposa Skies'
  • DepthOne inch deep. Set rhizome so bottom half is below ground level. Firm well and water thoroughly. Plant where they will get at least 6 hours of sun per day.
