Plant details

This tall bearded iris boasts the most stunning shade of purple flowers. Planted en masse, the effect is jaw-dropping. Irises are elegant plants, and their grey-green, sword-shaped leaves can also provide a contrast to softer, rounder-shaped plants. They do tend to suffer as their clumps grow, so after three years or so, dig up the rhizomes about four to six weeks after flowering and replant strong, healthy sections taken from around the edge of the clump. They are best planted close to the soil's surface. This plant has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

my bearded iris have been in about 3 years. Why will they not flower.

These irises have been in my garden for over 50 years and have never failed to bloom. If you do move them they may not bloom the following year but after that they will or should bloom beautifully. They are one of the only flowers that are tolerant of drought, wet and other conditions which would see other varieties off. A success in my garden and one of my favourites.
