Concertina Reblooming Bearded Iris
This beauty has the perfect color contrast--nothing stands out like the brilliant blue beards against rose-pink falls. There's no wonder it won the Award of Merit in 2006. These colors together create a nice pastel tone, which is striking alongside other fair-faced perennials, and really pops against darker blooms. It grows to a mature height of around 27", which is short enough to make a high impact front border. It is also ideal for naturalizing in a spot you don't want to mow or worry about this spring. It's easy to care for--a great soil and drought tolerance make it very low-maintenance. Iris germanica 'Concertina'
