To be honest with you, I don’t remember having this variety of iris in my home garden. This past week the tall peach bearded iris is blooming again.
Tall Peach Iris in My Home Garden
I am guessing I dug this up from my sister in laws house. It is next to a beautiful blue bearded iris in the front sunroom garden. Early in the season I removed the ivy from around the base of the tubers. I was worried the ivy would choke the plant off and I would lose the blooms. Actually, I think having the roots covered by the ivy made it bloom. This tall peach iris had over a dozen bloom on about 5 fans or leaves.
I took this photo with my Nikon this afternoon. It was super fun exploring this iris variety.
About The Peach Bearded Iris
There are a few different varieties of this peach iris out there. After searching on Google I was shocked to find so many. I wonder if they all bloom early in the season like this one did. Because of the random weather we’ve been having over the years I would recommend this to a garden that is in zones 5 or less. The peach color doesn’t like the heat and humidity. In autumn I am making notes to move this bearded iris to a spring shade location to see how the color of the bloom will respond. Be sure to follow my blog to find out more about this peach iris.
