Sizzling color in the perennial border—it's such a trend right now. And we knew just where to go to create this look. German iris come in the most exceptional range of colors, and their rolling, ruffling flower forms are perfect for showing off hot colors. We picked three popular varieties for our Spicy Hot Collection. Of course, they're each prized for their bright colors, but gardeners also love their exceptional reliability in the garden. Bundled together, you'll save 36% over buying each variety individually. The collection includes Ancient Echoes, Autumn Riesling and Blaze of Glory. Autumn Riesling is a more recent hybrid with a striking flower form and excellent substance. Blaze of Glory's rare colors blending seamlessly together adds sophistication to the fiery collection. Ancient Echoes absolutely commands attention, especially with that eye-catching edging along its falls.
