Instructions

Growing Instructions:

  • Japanese iris are shipped as bare roots. They are moisture loving plants and will flourish in areas where the water-table is high
  • Soak the roots over night in luke-warm water before planting.
  • Plants should be planted after the last frost and soil is workable. Loosen the soil and dig a hole 7-12 cm (3-5") deep and create a mound in the center. Place the plant on the mound and spread out the roots with the crown (where the leaves and roots meet), 2.5 cm (1") below the soil surface. Fill in around the roots, firmly press down the soil so it is even with the surrounding ground. Make sure there are no air pockets in the soil. Water generously after planting to settle the soil around the roots.

Planting Depth: 2.5 cm (1")

Plantling Spacing: 30-46 cm (12-18")

Suggestions

Growing Suggestions:

  • Japenese iris are moisture loving plants and will flourish in areas where the water-table is high or around ponds
  • They prefer slightly acidic soil do not like to be dried out
  • Do not allow soil to completely dry out. Keep the soil consistently moist during the first year while they are establishing and do not fertilize. If plants are not receiving water from regular rain, provide your plants with 2.5 cm (1") of water per week.
  • Do not remove the foliage after flowering as the leaves gather sunlight to create food and strengthens the plant. Leaves can be removed once outdoor temperatures are cooler and leaves have turned yellow and die back. In warmer climates, the leaves may remain green throughout winter.
