Iris 'Ever After' (Bearded Iris)

Iris 'Ever After' (Bearded Iris)

Delicious colour - and scented too

Mulberry-coloured petals, which become paler towards the base and have softly ruffled edges, offer a vibrant contrast to the bright orange beards. These lightly scented flowers, will add bold colour to the border in late spring and early summer, and look wonderful when mixed with paler pinks, as well as all shades of blue and purple. 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.
