Iris 'Best Bet' (Bearded Iris)

Iris 'Best Bet' (Bearded Iris)

Tall and elegant

Pale sky blue standards, form a beautiful contrast with the purple-blue falls of this lightly scented, tall bearded iris. Magnificent when planted in drifts through a sunny border, or incorporated into a gravel garden, these plants are invaluable for adding vertical interest to the planting scheme. Like all irises, it is worth preparing the soil before planting by adding plenty of well rotted manure or good garden compost to provide nitrogen and other nutrients.
