  • Height: 36 inches
  • Spacing: 36-38 inches
  • Depth: Dig a shallow hole 2-4" deep and twice as wide as the rhizome. Place the rhizome on a small mound in the middle of this hole and spread the roots. Fill the hole with soil, but only partially cover the rhizome. Water thoroughly.

  • Color: Lacy coral pink.
  • Foliage: Glaucous-green, sword-like fans of stiff upright leaves in spring and summer with some dying back in colder climates in winter.
  • Blooms: late spring to early summer
  • Flower Form: Exquisite form, very lacy and very wide.
  • Soil Requirements: well-drained, fertile soil,
  • Growth Rate: Fast once established, which takes approximately 4-6 weeks.
  • Pruning: Very important to cut off dead blooms to promote reblooming.
  • Comments: As popular as its namesake. Winner of multiple awards, including the prestigious Dykes Medal and Award of Merit from the American Iris Society. Fast grower with high bud count. Blooms for 3 weeks in the spring returning in late summer. You will receive a rhizome with clipped roots and leaves. It can remain out of the ground for a week or two without serious harm, but the sooner it is planted, the better.
