    In each collection you will receive 3 bare root iris plants - one of each of the following:

  • 'Champagne Elegance' Grows to cm.

  • 'Loop the Loop' Grows to cm.

  • 'Black Dragon' In the spring sword-like foliage grows giving structure to your planting, then these amazing flowers appear in the deepest darkest purple that you can imagine, almost black. Combine these plants with lime green, white or paler purples for a stunning effect. Grows to 90cm.

    These are sold as bare root plants, which have recently been dug up from the ground. Therefore, they usually look a bit wilted and sad, however field grown plants are usually stronger and they will soon perk up very quickly when they are planted out in the garden or a patio pot.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the uppermost third of the leaves to protect against wind rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Remove the stems after flowering from the base as this will concentrate the plant's energy into producing new rhizomes. Divide and replant about every three years.

    Please note that these are sold as bare root plants should be planted out as soon as they arrive!
