Tall Bearded (TB)

Tall Bearded are the largest both in flower and plant of the bearded iris, also the last to bloom. Growing over 27.5 inches tall the large plant demands a 2 X 2 foot area in the garden. Those that we offer have great plant habits. Well placed buds (many with triple sockets) on multi branched stems. Peak bloom for us is late May to early June. Zone 3 – 9.
