Iris 'Quechee'

Plant details

What's known as a tall bearded iris (iris over 70cm), 'Quechee' has large, attractive, orange-red flowers with gold yellow centres in late spring and early summer. They're ideally suited to a pastel scheme, or as accent plants next to species with pale flowers and foliage. Plants benefit from being planted where their rhizomes are exposed to the sunshine. This will encourage them to flower freely. Don't plant them too close together or the group will become congested, to the detriment of the individual flowers.
