The petals of this bearded iris are yellow and white with a dark orange beard at its throat. Iris 'Olympic Challenge' flowers in May and June amid familiar sword-shaped grey-green leaves. Give it a sunny spot in a well-drained site and it'll perform wonderfully. Make sure when planting that the bulb is planted near the surface. Clumps will need dividing every three to four years, to ensure that they continue to produce the optimum number of flowers. Iris 'Olympic Challenge' is an attractive plant, suitable for cuttings.
