Bearded Iris ‘Midnight Blue’ (3 Rhizomes)

First listed in Schreiners catalogue in 1954 and described as .." Suave, pert, trimly tailored blue-black iris with deep violet overtones. The jaunty carriage, serene uniformity of colouring combined with inky colour saturation , plus a silky rather than velvety sheen, give it a personality all its own. Its outstanding floriferousness in the clump makes it an indispensable garden subject." Suggesting it was destined to be a landscape favourite - and they were right!
How to grow

Thriving in dry climate gardens, the strappy foliage is a useful accent all year while the flower heads create a seasonal display in mid-spring. Plant the rhizomes in a well prepared, free-draining soil with the top third at soil level so that they receive warm sunlight. Water regularly until established. Iris generally dislike strong winds and frosts, but are more tolerant once established. Divide as necessary to revitalise flowering and to maintain clump size. Divide after flowering in late summer or early autumn.
