Japanese Iris....organically grown......fresh dug from our fields.
Native to Japan, their wild iris ensatahas been cultivated and hybridized for over 800 years! Introduced in the United
States after the Civil War, American gardeners and breeders have been experimenting with their vast array of colors ever
requirements. Japanese Iris bloom after their Bearded Iris cousins, usually in June into July and sometime August, making
for nearly a full summer of  iris bloom. Rich organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 and full sun are ideal.  While their rhizomes can
be under a few inches of water during the growing season, this must be avoided during the freezing months. In the normal,
drier, garden soil environment make sure to apply a minimum of 1 to 2 inches of water a week.
