Candy Apple Classic German Iris Candy Apple Classic German Iris

Candy Apple Classic German Iris

Highlighted in Ultraviolet
Intense blooms with brilliant highlights will easily make themselves known among the greens of the garden. Perfect for drawing attention to a border you want people to venture towards. Red blooms really bring out the intricacies of this color blend. We also like this one for container gardening. It won't fade into the background, but its habit is very straight, like a flag for vertical interest. Bred by William Maryott, Candy Apple Classic German Iris has won both an Honorable Mention and the Award of Merit. The ever-popular German Iris has that classic elegance that makes a spring garden so strong. An easy-to-plant fall rhizome you can leave to chill overwinter and watch in spring as it burst up with tons of extravagant blooms. Give it well-drained soil and sunshine and you'll enjoy years of low-maintenance beauty and fresh spring bouquets. They can also be divided every few years for a bigger, more impressive display. Rarely bothered by deer.
