This hardy perennial is a popular option across many different nation areas, whether the bearded or beardless Iris is chosen as an option. This flower is so popular because of the ease with which they grow in well-drained soils. This flowering plant is named after the Greek Goddess Iris, who rides around the ancient world on rainbows.
The plant takes low maintenance. The Iris plant is a 3-6" blue with gold crested falls; they also come in lavender with white falls and lilac with yellow falls. They come in many different colors. The iris plant is slow-growing, but they spread fast. They are best when planted in the fall, and they will start to bloom in the springtime around March, April, and May. The stem is narrowed pointed yellowish-green leaves that stand at 6". That's where the name dwarf crested comes from. They can take up to two to three years to grow, but they can live up to ten years. They have native habits in rocky and wooded areas, bluffs, and sandy banks; these flowers attract hummingbirds and bees. They release nectar for the birds and bees. You can plant them in beds and borders of your garden, on your patio, and in-plant pots or you can use the plant as edgers. They make beautiful decorations for your garden or home; snails and slugs can be a problem for these flowers. Iris Cristata can pretty much take care of themselves if you plant them in the correct areas. It is an eye-catcher for all to see. It will add some color to your garden or your outside area.
One of the factors for the enjoyment of the Iris flower is the fact they are generally planted in the Fall or Winter before they bloom in the Spring and Summer of the following year. The Iris grows to greater heights when planted and allowed to become established when the Winter nights are cool before blooming the following Summer. The Iris does enjoy full sun conditions in most areas where the afternoon temperatures are not too hot during the Summer. In areas where extreme heat is encountered over the Summer, it can be good to plant in a location where some afternoon shade is provided. It is crucial to remember an Iris will only bloom when they are located in full sunshine with only a few hours of shade provided in the afternoons.
