Bearded irises are live plants (not dried
bulbs). PLANT THEM IMMEDIATELY. They need well-drained soil, neutral
pH, and at least 6 hours of sun per day. Instructions are included in each
shipment. When each new plant is in the ground, remove the stapled name
tag and insert it in the soil in front of the iris. Do not
water iris excessively, particularly in very hot climates. Normal rainfall is usually
adequate for bearded irises. THE FASTEST WAY TO KILL A BEARDED IRIS
IS TOO MUCH WATERING.
In Texas, bearded irises grow best north and west of US
59 (from Houston to Laredo). They require a definite winter season not
found further south or near the Gulf Coast.
Likewise, bearded irises are not suitable for
semi-tropical or warm coastal zones like central and southern Florida.
Argyle Acres is a state licensed and
inspected nursery. We guarantee all plants to be healthy and true to name
as registered with the American Iris Society. If there is a problem, let
us know immediately.
