IRIS
GODDESS (AND FLOWER!) OF THE RAINBOW
Below is a table listing varieties of bearded Iris currently in production.  It is not an exhaustive
listing, nor are all varieties listed currently available.  Stock fluctuates from season to season, and
some varieties perform better in containers than others do.  An availability listing will appear soon,
but if you're looking for a specific variety, please drop us a line
here for current availability.  All
varieties appearing in blue have a current photo (some are better than others...my apologies for
those that aren't the greatest).  Click the link to view.  I take my own photos of what we grow, so it
can take a season or two after I list a particular plant for a photo to be posted.  

Bearded Iris types:
AB = Arilbred
BB = Border Bearded
MDB = Miniature Dwarf Bearded
MTB = Miniature Tall Bearded
SDB = Standard Dwarf Bearded
TB = Tall Bearded

A note about "reblooming:"
Rebloom, or remontancy, is governed by a genetic predisposition in the handful of varieties that
exhibit this trait, but it is heavily influenced by external factors.  For example, I have never had a
variety rebloom when growing in a container.  Weather, water, nutrition, and even length of
growing season have a profound effect on whether an Iris will bloom a second time in a season.  
A "Yes" in the Rebloom column denotes varieties that
can give you that coveted second show,
but we cannot guarantee that they
will in any given year.

And please remember...
Bearded Iris do NOT like "wet feet."  Plant in an area that drains well and gets a minimum of 6
hours of sun a day, avoid overfertilizing, and enjoy the rainbow of color every spring!
