Idol Bearded Iris

Big, bold flowers on towering stems
An iris with a bit of glam rock attitude, Idol Bearded Iris isn't soon to be forgotten. The falls, or lower petals, are large and jammy-purple, and the standards, or upper petals, shine in golden apricot. Each fall features a bright orange-red, fuzzy beard that adds even more appeal! Idol German Iris stands head and shoulders above the rest of your garden, reaching a mature height of over three feet. Plant in the back of the bed for a flower that truly elevates the height and beauty of your garden. This is a perennial you simply can't ignore, and you'll love its vigorous growing habit and easy-to-please care needs. Deer resistant too.
