Villa Erba KickStart™ Bearded Iris

Big and blue irises that bloom in the first season
What's a Kickstart Iris? These abundantly-blooming irises bloom in the very first year after they're planted, so you'll have more blooms in your first season--and every season. Villa Erba is no exception, with oodles of blooms in classic blue. Elegant standards (or upper petals) show off a classic wisteria-indigo, and falls (lower petals) in very pale blue, with bright tangerine-orange beards. These tall flowers are perfect for those back-of-the-border locations that can be difficult to fill. This attractive blue iris stuns with six inch flowers, starting in mid-season.
