Japanese Iris (JI)

Iris ensata

Iris ensata have been selectively bred from wild forms found in northern Asia. Their cultural needs are very demanding, if met they will reward you with a magnificent display of color approximately 2-3 weeks after Tall Bearded bloom. Peak bloom in our garden is the last two weeks of June. Culture has a great influence; please refer to the culture page.

Mt. Pleasant Iris is a National Display Garden for Japanese Iris, and Chad has a great passion for these plants. Due to the abundance of information on each cultivar, please click on the image to be taken to another page with a full description and more details. Height, number of branches, and buds, were taken when the plants were three years old, and grown to my best ability.
