It’s Spring in the Mid-Atlantic area of the U.S. and our “Indian Chief” Bearded Irises are blooming! These Irises are burgundy with gold accents. We have an abundance of Bearded Irises this year. We can only assume it is due to the frequent rains this season. To learn the secret to continuous Iris blooms every year, click here.
For the beginner gardener, it is important to keep in mind that Irises need to be divided every few years. If they become overcrowded, them will not bloom. For the secret to continuous Iris blooms, click here.
Irises come in many different colors and varieties! They do not require fertilizer on pruning. One important aspect of planting Bearded irises is to keep the rhizome close to the surface of the ground. Irises are very easy to plant and grow. For details on How to Plant and Grow Irises, click here.
Even after heavy rains, our “Indian Chief” Bearded Irises are still standing tall! We transplanted these Irises from an area that wasn’t getting much sun, to an area that gets several hours of morning sun. Apparently, they are very happy. Plants will find a way to let you know whether or not they are happy!
