These eye-catching Irises are happiest in full sun and well-draining soil. But don't fear if you have the wrong soil or conditions in your outdoor space, just grow them in pots - make sure their roots are partially exposed, that they have good drainage and then you can move them around, along with the sun!
We also like Iris for their upright sword-like leaves, which last much longer than the flower. They extend their season of interest and provide us with a unique texture in the border or in a gravel bed.
If you are cutting Iris to bring them indoors, then a useful tip is to remove any fading flowers, and that way you will encourage the remaining buds to emerge. Enjoy!
