How do you grow a bearded iris?
If you're looking for continuous spring colors then look no further than bearded Iris. While it's relatively easy to cultivate but there are some factors that will ensure that the plant id growth will be stunning year after year.
Bearded Iris thrives best in full sunlight with plenty of flowers, and well-drained soil, so that the rhizomes do not rot. To ensure that your plants are healthy, you can fertilize them with a low-nitrogen fertilizer in the springtime and then again after they stop blooming.
Bearded iris rhizomes that are planted
If you spot a beautiful bearded iris in a pot at the garden centre in spring or purchase through a mail-order business that delivers the rhizomes to you in the summer The rhizomes must be planted beneath the surface of soil to prevent the onset of rot. Plant the rhizomes between 1 and 2 feet apart. The smaller varieties closer than the more affluent ones. This gives enough room for you to not have to divide every few years.
Find the hole that is the right size
To plant bearded iris , dig a small hole, and utilize a portion of the soil to construct an unassuming hill in the middle. Install a rhizome at the top of the soil hill and spread the roots out and the rhizome placed at the soil's level. Fill the hole with soil, filling in the roots, and then expanding with each step to ensure it is firmly anchored. It's okay if a portion of the rhizome is visible over the soil, as in the picture above. Give your plants a good soak and don't stress about watering them again unless it's a dry season as much as 1 inch of rain per week is enough for bearded Irises.
Deadheading bearded iris with bearded hair
Bearded irises begin blooming on the highest point of the stem, and begin to lower, with each flower lasting two to three days. It's possible to cut off each flower when they begin to fade if you'd prefer, but it is best to cut the branch back down to foliage after all blooms have finished cleaning the area.
