There are more than 300 species of Iris that grow well across the majority of soil and climate types.
This flowering plant is named after the Greek Goddess, Iris, who was known for riding around the ancient world on rainbows. The colorful range of options available with the Iris flower is plentiful but tends to focus on blues, whites, and purples.
This hardy perennial is a popular option across many different areas of the nation whether the bearded or beardless Iris is chosen as an option. One of the reasons this flower is so popular is the ease with which they grow in well-drained soils.
Planting on the side of a hill or slope is a good option because the plant will grow to its maximum height, which depends on the species chosen.
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 it is 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 a good idea to plant in a location where some afternoon shade is provided. It is important to remember an Iris will only bloom when they are located in a position of full sunshine with only a few hours of shade provided in the afternoons.
