1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

 

In midspring tall blue-gray flowers stalks are adorned with 2-4 grape juice purple buds open to 6" wide flowers with dark purple falls and slightly lighter medium purple standards with a yellow-orange 'beard' or nectar guide. Bobbie's Old Fashioned Purple Bearded Iris is an heirloom pass-a-along that appropriately has found its way to us from both sides of our family and we came to know it as "Bobbie's Purple" since Aunt Bobbie shared it with us. The steely blue-gray fans of foliage act as a wonderful foil for the dark colored flowers and the plants will eventually develop into a groundcover like group of plants. Provide this heirloom Bearded Iris with a well-drained soil in a full to mostly sunny location for optimum vigor and flowering. Sold as individual plants actively growing is their own soil and container. Item# 11696
