Iris4u Greenhouse Online Catalog - It's In The Flower!
Dear Iris4u Friends,
Our iris season for 2020 has ended. We had a few challenges to overcome at the start of our season, but we did our best to navigate them, and despite the changes we were able to end the iris year on a positive note! A big heartfelt THANK YOU to each of you who helped make this year a successful one for us!
We will resume taking orders in April 2021. We anticipate that we will be back to a somewhat "normal", our catalog will be filled again to full capacity and all those beautiful varieties you've been collecting in your Wish List will be available once again!
Until then we thank you for all your support and wish you a colorful summer!
Take care of one another,
Jennifer & 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!
