Zone: 3 to 9
Bloom Time: Late Spring
These beautiful blue irises have yellow throats which make the blue stand out even more. These grow from bulbs that you can plant in the fall, and make a beautiful display in the late spring.
The leaves die back after the plant has finished blooming, so it helps to plant them with later-blooming plants that will fill in the space. Also (as with other spring blooming bulbs), don’t cut the leaves off until they have turned brown…they are strengthening the bulbs for next year’s blooms!
