Product Description

With pastel standards and jewel-tone falls, the bi-color beauty of Broad Shoulders tall bearded iris is anything but subtle. Broadly ruffled, buff-colored standards feature a touch of lavender at the center and sit proudly on gothic burgundy falls. The color combination creates a striking contrast and regal air, and is tied together with henna-brown beards. In dusky lighting, this iris looks black-and-white, while its nuanced tones shine through on summer days. An award winning, midseason bloomer with good height, Broad Shoulders is stunning at the back of the border, or planted as a focal point in the landscape. Iris germanica 'Broad Shoulders'
