‘War Chief’ has been called one of the best red irises. With large, 6″ velvety red/scarlet blooms that do not fade in the sun, this robust grower sports 8-9 flowers per stalk.
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.
