Description

Iris germanica, also known as Bearded Iris, are some of the earliest flowering perennials which provide sumptuous flowers in hot summer borders. Their blue-green, sword-like foliage also provides interest and good contrast with softer mounds of other perennials, long after the flowers have faded. Iris germanica ‘Miles Ahead’ has typically showy blooms with generously ruffled petals. The 16 x 11cm blooms are described as ‘giant’ sized.  The standards are ivory white complemented by white falls with a broad border of mottled blue. Height: 90cm (35in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


1 x 9cm Potted Plant (KC7170)

How to Grow
A sunny position in well drained soil is ideal for growing iris. Bearded iris rhizomes prefer an open position where the rhizomes can bake in the summer sun, without being shaded by other plants. These perennials require a very free draining soil, so amend heavy clay soils with plenty of grit and well rotted manure prior to planting. When planting iris, ensure that the rhizome sits just at the soil surface as they are prone to rot if planted too deeply.
More Info
Overcrowded clumps of bearded iris plants can be divided in late summer after flowering. Avoid mulching the rhizomes to prevent them from rotting over winter. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
