Iris 'Blue Rhythm'
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: May and June
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Luscious, lemon-scented, cornflower blue flowers with ruffled petals in May and June and sword-shaped, grey-green leaves, retained all year. This stately bearded iris looks lovely towards the front of a sunny, well-drained border among lavender or Russian sage. A popular, tall variety, it will need staking.
- Garden Care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the upper-most third of the leaves to protect against wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Divide and replant about every three years.
- Harmful if eaten
