Iris4u Greenhouse Online Catalog - It's In The Flower!
Welcome to Iris4u Greenhouse!
Dear Iris4u friends and fans,
Spring has taken its sweet time to arrive this year but finally, Tall-Bearded Iris buds are now starting to open, showing off their diverse and beautiful forms and features! It is foreseeable that customers old and new are going to want more color and newer iris varieties for their garden! Which is why we at Iris4u Greenhouse can completely understand the confusion over us closing our online shop unusually early this season.
Since the start of April, we have been experiencing an unprecedented demand for our iris varieties which can be attributed to not just the Corona-gardening phenomenon, but also to a very kind and gracious article about us in the current issue (May/June 2021) of the gardening magazine LandLust.
We ourselves are more than surprised by this incredible boom; almost overwhelmed by the attention. It was not an easy decision to make, but the mere fact that we are almost sold out has moved us to take this step.
Our online shop has therefore closed for the 2021 season!
We thank you for your understanding and are truly grateful for the trust our customers have placed in Iris4u Greenhouse!
We wish you a wonderful summer, stay healthy and see you next year!
Jennifer and Markus Dreyer
Did you know that the Tall Bearded Iris was named Perennial of the Year 2016 in Germany?
They may seem like garden divas, but in actuality, iris are easy to care for and thrive in almost all soil types. With plenty of sun and warmth, these uncomplicated perennials become the “kings and queens” of your garden between May and June.
Whether you call these cultivars Iris, Bearded Iris, Tall Bearded Iris, Iris germanica, Iris barbata, or Iris barbata-elatior makes no difference. The name is not what impresses, but rather the flower: solid self or multi-colored; laced or ruffled; spooned or horned beards. There is something for everyone and the combinations are endless.
Our filter function below will help you navigate our online shop to help you find your perfect iris!
When will my Iris bloom? There are 3 main categories when Tall Bearded Iris start to flower: Early, Mid-season and Late. Naturally weather plays a big role - warm spring temperatures will mean an earlier start to the season. A cooler spring then means a later start. Below is a general rule of thumb when to expect color in your garden.
Very Early: beginning of May
Early: mid to end of May
Middle: end of May to the beginning of June
Late: mid to end of June
Rebloomer: Tall Bearded Iris is a winter hardy perennial which blooms each year in spring. A “Rebloomer” blooms in spring and can potentially bloom again in autumn. That’s what makes them so unique!
