Dramatic black buds adorn the Anvil of Darkness Bearded Iris and make a statement even before they open! The flower buds on this iris are truly black, when the buds open the flowers have a deep and sultry violet/black color.

  • Bearded Iris need to be planted in full sun
  • Soil that drains well is essential to the health of your bearded iris. Amend soil with organic matter such as compost, manure or peat moss prior to planting.
  • Bearded Iris should be planted at least 6 weeks before your ground freezes for the year. The earlier in late summer or early fall you can plant bearded iris the better results you will have.
  • Bearded Iris are quite sensitive to planting depth. Plant so that the rhizome is partially above ground, typically this planting depth is 1-2” below the soil surface.
  • Bearded Iris will multiply over time, space according to package instructions.
  • Water the planting area immediately after planting to eliminate air pockets. Bearded Iris are sensitive to rotting, any additional water in fall or winter is not required.

This was part of the "Waves of Purple Bearded Iris Collection." They arrived as expected and in great condition. I am very much looking forward to seeing them grow and bloom next spring. I also had an issue with my order, but Holland and Bulbs exceeded my expectations with their custom service and commitment to their customers. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
