Bearded Iris 'Batik'
Captivating royal purple flowers splashed with white.
Blooms early summer
This early-summer bloomer thrills with its richly-pigmented royal blue petals streaked and splashed in white. Each flower has its own unique markings that set it apart from the others, so it’s fun to see how each one will unfurl. The fragrant flowers are large, with up to 5-7 blossoms per 24” stem.
Blooms in May / June, and prefers full to partial sun.
Does not ship internationally.

Price as selected:
Bearded Iris should be planted in full sun to partial shade - they require at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. They perform best in well-drained soil and should be planted on the surface of the soil with any roots facing down and buried, with the fan of the leaves and the upper surface of the rhizome facing up and exposed. Provide a layer of light mulch (such as straw or leaves) the first winter, but remove this as soon as the weather warms in spring; beyond this do not mulch.
Water in after transplanting; beyond that only provide water if it is extremely dry.
Plants benefit from a low nitrogen fertilizer in early spring and just after blooming to nourish the rhizomes. Apply fertilizer around the rhizomes, but not directly onto them.
Remove spent flowerheads after blooming is finished, and prune back the foliage to about 6" in fall after several frosts have occurred.
Bearded Iris like a lot of airflow and don't do well when crowded, so as your clumps grow they should be divided every 3-4 years to maintain 16" spacing.
