Bearded Irises are hardy perennials that are very easy to grow. They bloom in late spring, typically after tulips and daffodils. Plant in medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Plant pre-potted iris in late spring or dry roots in late summer. Irises are popular for their beauty and in many cultures for their meaning.

  • In ancient Greek times, “eiris” meant “messenger” or “eloquence”, which related to the messages the Greek goddess, Iris, carried.
  • In Japanese culture – iris is revered for its purifying properties. It had the ability to remove evil energies
  • The Chinese portrayed the iris in a lighter form - it was seen as “the dancing spirit of early summer.”
  • Less of a culture but more during a period in time, the Victorian Era, irises represented faith, hope, courage, wisdom and admiration.

What will these beauties mean to you in your landscape?

This beauty, loved by many, is a name of genus, which includes flower bulbs like Daffodils, Jonquils, Paper whites, etc.

According to classical mythology, a young lad Narcissus, was so enamored with himself that he stared at his reflection in a pool of water until he eventually turned into his namesake flower. And this is how Narcissus flowers earned their name.

Narcissus bloom in late winter or early spring and are great for planting between shrubs, in a border or for forcing blooms indoor.
