Buy Iris 'Black Watch' bearded iris: Perfect for adding oomph to the colour palette.

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile, neutral to acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The dark (near black) colouring of this stunning bearded iris is perfect for adding oomph to the colour palette. Plant it in unevenly numbered clusters or create irregular drifts in a sun-baked border for real late spring and early summer drama.

  • 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. Remove the stems after flowering from the base as this will concentrate the plant's energy into producing new rhizomes. Divide and replant about every three years.
