Ultimate Miniature Bearded Iris

Compact, versatile and exciting
Detailed and plentiful, the little blooms on Ultimate are very eye-catching. The pure canary yellow fluttering ruffles look almost birdlike in their beauty. Group together several Ultimate iris for high impact, or use them to add some sunshine along the front of a border. Miniature Iris are also great for a potted display on a garden table, as the small stature means you won't have to make room for a large pot to get the ratio right. 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.
