Early Summer Violet Blooms

This iris has garnered quite the reputation. Since its introduction it has won numerous awards and is still listed as one of the top ten in the American Iris Society's, “100 Most Popular Bearded Iris” list. Producing such a gorgeous flower, it is easy to see why it has earned such acclaim!

With delicately ruffled, dark violet petals and violet-edged, snowy white lower petals, Stepping Out creates an aesthetic contrast that is sure to garner the attention and admiration of any onlookers stepping by your garden.

Your Stepping Out Tall Bearded Iris is a flowering perennial that will grow up to 38 inches in height. The blossoms rise above the earth on deep green, willowy stems. It’s easy to grow, hardy, and pest resistant. Stepping Out is a favorite among pollinators, yet deer and rabbits tend to pass it by.

Stepping Out is a profuse bloomer that would be right at home in your sunny garden and will mix quite harmoniously with nearly any of your other plantings.

Stepping Out is an apt name for this award-winning Iris. Its beauty is akin to being “all dressed up for a night on the town”, and is sure to bring that same elegance and excitement to your yard year-after-year.

* Deer and rabbit resistant
* Light shade tolerant
* Drought resistant
* Profuse bloomer
