LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT?
| The table below lists varieties of beardless Iris currently in production. Stock fluctuates from
season to season, and some varieties perform better in containers than others do, just as with
bearded selections. An availability listing will appear soon, but in the meantime, please drop us a
line here for current availability. All variety names appearing in blue have a current photo (some
are better than others...my apologies for any that aren't exactly stellar in quality). Click the link to
Beardless Iris types we grow:
As a general rule, beardless Iris tend to be more tolerant of occasional wetness than bearded
varieties, with the Louisiana types being about the closest to a "water Iris" as it gets...with the
exception of Iris pseudacorus ("yellow flag"). I. pseudacorus is classified as invasive in many
areas, so it's not one we offer. Unlike their bearded cousins, the selections found here prefer to
have their rhizomes (the thickened bulblike structures between the bases of the leaf fans and the
actual fibrous roots) below the soil line. They also bloom generally as the bearded varieties
wane, which can increase the length of Iris season in your landscape.
