Finishing School German Iris Finishing School German Iris

Finishing School German Iris

Early Bloomer with Great Perfume
This iris is all sweet scent and charming ruffles, and you'll be delighted at its return each spring. Bicolor really works well on the German Iris flower form and Finishing School is the perfect example of that. These pretty, delicate and contrasting tones are gorgeous together. In borders, containers and bouquets, Finishing School is sure to shine. Bred by the talented American Iris breeder, Rick Ernst. 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.
