Lady of the Night German Iris Lady of the Night German Iris

Lady of the Night German Iris

Bring Dimension to your Mixed Border
These bright beards pop against the deep, dramatic tones of Lady of the Night's petals. Gardeners love dark iris because they add a lot of intrigue to a display. Like adding shading to a sketch, it makes the whole show a lot more dynamic and beautiful. We especially love it with pastel pinks and purples, as the lighter colors bring out the complexity in its hues while it provides enough substance that the pastel won't fade into the background. Lady of the Night has won multiple awards and is a strong performer in the garden. 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.
