For Veronica Bearded Iris

A cheery purple iris
With wide ruffles on its wine-purple standards and even darker falls, this delightful iris makes a cheery addition to the garden. Each plant will produce 8 buds on 3 branches, a bright pop of color that stands out against the green, sword-like foliage. Plant in full sun to partial shade for best results. Once established, For Veronica will grow quickly and will bloom in mid-spring. It's named for Veronica Haag, who married this iris' original hybridizer: F. X. Schreiner.
