When it comes to planting tall bearded iris, you have options. You can create a gorgeous border brimming with large, frilled and ruffled, colorful blooms—they are hard to beat for elegance and style. They're also divine for a drought-tolerant mixed perennial border. They add diversity to the planting and make a lovely vertical accent with strong stalks and long, grasslike foliage. In both landscaping uses, the rule is; the more the merrier. The effect really doesn't work unless you've got enough iris blooms to fill out the display. That's why we're introducing the Tall Bearded Iris Grab Bag. Our experts have added many well-loved varieties to the mix, so you'll get a random assortment of six top-quality rhizomes in each grab bag. Each rhizome will be individually labeled.
