On Edge Tall Bearded Iris, Iris Germanica 'On Edge', is an alluring, early-mid season bloomer that evokes a delicate, rustic charm with its soft billowing petals, long slender stems, and shades of violet and white. The upright petals of each blossom are a delicate violet/lavender shade, with the downward petals (falls), featuring pristine white, edged in purple. A delightful yellow beard provides an additional splash of color to the velvety falls.

On Edge is a clump-forming plant that will be most comfortable in sunny sections of your garden, but is not intolerant to partial shade either. This delightful plant is relatively low maintenance and hardy.

On Edge prefers moist soil but can manage drier conditions as well and is usually unbothered by pests. Bees are known to frequent this plant so your garden is sure to be abuzz with activity from helpful pollinators! Plant a few along your walkway, fence line, or in those corners of the garden where other plants might struggle.

Iris' has long been valued for being a tough, easy-to-grow perennial. Their upright, sturdy form and carefree nature make them easy to place throughout the landscape, and a brilliant show can be depended upon when they present their yearly display. No matter how you look at it, On Edge Tall Bearded iris will be a great addition to your garden this year!
