Iris ‘Rio Rojo’


Tall Bearded Iris

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.295.850


Tall Bearded Iris are the giants of the late spring border, available in a rainbow of colours and blends to suit every colour scheme. Plants form a clump of green sword-shaped leaves, bearing upright stems with very large blooms. This outstanding selection is an achievement in red iris. Dark red-purple flowers with darker fuzzy beards. Early-Midseason. Excellent for cutting. Iris are heavy feeders, so plan to fertilize in early spring, and again in late summer. Plants should be divided every 3 to 4 years, in August. Be on the watch for Iris borer. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
