Iris Brown Lasso
The German Iris 'Brown Lasso', Iris germanica, has orchid-lavender falls edged in brown with mustard- gold standards. Also known as "Bearded Iris", it is outstanding for its unusual color, design, and sturdy, vigorous growth habit. It is a hardy, disease and drought-resistant plant. Long blooming in late spring and early summer, with handsome green sword-like foliage, 'Brown Lasso' enjoys full or part sun and well-drained soil. Plant about 15-18 inches apart.
These Iris are easy to grow and thrive in moist, well-draining soil. They bloom in mid spring for a 2 - 3 week period. Plant bearded Iris bulbs in 10 to 14 day intervals to enjoy a continuous supply of cut flowers. For a more striking effect, plant the bulbs in groups of 20 or more. In cold areas the Iris should be mulched in winter to protect from frost. The Iris plant is great for borders, containers, naturalizing, and cut flowers. They are deer, rabbit and squirrel resistant.
