Iris Germanica

Iris Germanica

Regular price £24.99


With pretty coloured flowers and an unusual ruffle-shaped petal, the Iris Germanica is a great option for all garden styles, from balconies to lawns. All types of Iris take their name from the Greek word meaning 'rainbow' - very fitting as the Bearded Iris comes in a variety of shades. And in case you were wondering about the bearded part of this plant's name - it's the fuzzy row of hairs near the base of each petal.

The Iris Germanica ticks all the boxes, not only growing well in flowerbeds and patio pots alike, but its fragrant blooms make fantastic cut flowers for you to enjoy inside, too.

Expect to see this plant flower from May to June. It will grow best in sunny spots and with well-drained soil. The Iris Germanica is also loved by pollinators, so expect to see butterflies and bees in your garden where this is planted.

Jo's Top Tip

If you're planting the Iris Germanica straight into a flowerbed, it should be the only plant in that bed as it doesn't like to be crowded with other plants. Less competition for sunlight will also encourage flowering.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
