This dazzling iris is an ideal choice for your iris bed and looks amazing when paired with chocolate, yellows, and violets.

Its impressive height makes it a great back border in your perennial bulb bed.
Plant your Classic Hues Iris in fall and it will thrive come spring. When planting your iris, create a small mound of soil and lay the roots downward, then cover the roots with soil and bury the rhizome, leaving the top third above the soil. Water it well for the first two weeks, then cover it with mulch to help protect it from winter damage.
If you live for finding rare and sophisticated iris selections, the Classic Hues Tall Bearded Iris should be next on your list. Order now!
Information About Bare Root Iris
Bare root Iris are shipped as nice fresh cut divisions with two to three fans of green tops. Keep in mind each Iris variety can have slightly different sized roots.
When planting, make sure 1/3rd of the rhizome is exposed to sunlight with the roots buried underneath. Note, it's best to cover the rhizome with a thin layer of mulch or leaves to protect it during the coldest months but make sure to uncover in the spring.
