Paprika Fono's Reblooming German Iris

Uniquely colored iris adds warm color to the garden when it blooms in mid spring. The 5-in., lightly ruffled, reddish-brown petals have a creamy yellow center and bright orange beards. Cut a few flowers for an indoor arrangement or enjoy in the garden. Reblooms in late summer to early fall. Grows 36 in. tall with a 12-24 in. spread. An easy, showy perennial to grow, German or bearded iris are drought and deer resistant. Generations of gardeners have loved iris for their elegance and easy care. Ideal for sunny borders, rock gardens, naturalized areas and perennial flower beds. Plants can be divided every 3-4 years. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Bareroot. Zones 4-9.

Paprika Fono is available as #1 rhizome of a larger, KickStart™ size. A top-quality #1 rhizome may take a couple years before delivering perennial color. However, KickStart Iris rhizomes are bigger than the industry's top grade, and will produce blooms in the first year--guaranteed. Plus, they're already developing more stems for year two... or divide and share them with a friend.
