Miniature Tall Bearded Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Iris

  • Deep Violet and White Blooms
  • A Miniature Tall Bearded
  • Perfect for Petite Yards

This miniature tall bearded Iris is perfect for small yards that need the drama and allure of an elegant iris. The Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Iris (Iris germanica 'Frosted Velvet') is perfect for flower arrangements, perennial borders, and containers.

With all the strength and beauty of a full-sized tall bearded Iris, the Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Iris is about two-thirds of the size. With strong stems and ample blooms, this variety is prized for the contrast of its purple and white blooms.

The Frosted Velvet Iris offers the striking coloration and unique shape of an orchid without the temperamental care and abundant blooms. With a late spring bloom, you'll look forward to these blossoms. This iris features royal purple falls with white veins and edges, elegant white standards and creamy yellow beards.

To make the most of your Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Iris, you want to plant it where all the neighbors can admire it. Plant a ring of these showy beauties around your mailbox or birdbath. If you want to keep it safe, plant several in a container by your front door or garage. You can even keep this velvety secret to yourself in a container on your patio or by your pool.

This pollinator-friendly plant may look like it's dressed for a formal occasion, but it doesn't require the upkeep of a high-maintenance plant. When you first plant it, make sure you water it well, so it can send its deep, strong roots downward in preparation for the frost.

Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Irises like fast draining soil of most types. While this great plant will thrive in partial sun, full-sun encourages the best and most abundant blooms. Mulch this iris once the ground freezes and prune back in late fall.

This marvelous iris adds grandeur to compact spaces without a grand amount of work. This petite iris will thrive while leaving you plenty of time to sit and admire its ravishing blooms.

If your yard could use an elegant iris with deep purple petals, you need a Frosted Velvet Tall Bearded Iris. Fill your yard with bountiful blooms without taking up excessive space, order yours today!
