Ruffled orange blossoms with vibrant beards the color of glowing embers add a warm presence to the June border. ‘Firebreather’ produces numerous blossoms per stem. An American Iris Society award winner.
German bearded iris are heirloom plants as tolerant and adaptable as they come. Spikey blue-green foliage makes an attractive show across three seasons, and spring blooms are a harbinger of the summer season to come. Break off seedpods that form after blooms have faded and prune back foliage in fall if desired. Some varieties rebloom in fall, and flowers bloom in a variety of striking colors!
Plants can be divided every few years.
