Mardi Gras Iris Collection

The King of your Garden's Festival
The vivid, ruffled blooms on these three German Iris feature those festive colors found in the parade down Bourbon Street each year—bright yellow, purple and the green from the long, handsome leaves. Let the colors that put people in the festival mood each Mardi Gras season kick up the atmosphere in your garden beds, too. In the coming years, more and more blooms will appear. Charm loved ones with a bouquet, or divide to let envious friends join the party! Mardi Gras Iris Collection includes Above the Rim, Candy Apple and Blatant. 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.
