  • Height: 24 - 40 inches
  • Spacing: 12 - 18 inches
  • Depth: Dig a shallow hole 2 - 4 inches 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.

  • Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.
  • Color: Royal red with yellow and white throat.
  • Foliage: Long, narrow, sword-like bright green leaves.
  • Blooms: Early to mid summer for several weeks.
  • Fruit: Capsules, sometimes used in dried arrangements.
  • Form: Upright
  • Flower Form: 5 - 6 inch flowers with 3 to 6 large petals hanging down rather than upright standards like bearded iris.
  • Soil Requirements: Humus enriched, moisture retentive and on the acid side. Dislikes sandy soil.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: Dead-head. Tolerant to pruning in late fall or early winter. Can wait to remove dead leaves in spring.
  • Comments: The last of the Iris varieties to bloom. Very large orchid-like blooms against beautiful sword-like foliage. Deer resistant. Hardy - few problems. A light winter mulch is recommended in cold areas, remove in early spring before growth starts.
