This year the iris are beautiful! Blooms are bountiful and I’m actually seeing a few that haven’t bloomed in years and had forgotten what some have looked like. Here’s a pleasant surprise, a peach colored iris that is about to unfurl.
I paid a little more attention to my iris this year with watering a few weeks before bloom and giving them a boost of fertilizer, it did the job and although iris are pretty maintenance free, they do need a little love before they bloom.
Here is a good webpage from White Flower Farms to learn about iris care.
