Buy Iris 'Sultan's Palace' bearded iris: Sultry, maroon flowers

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


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

    A magnificent, sultry, bearded iris, with lustrous, maroon-red flowers held on tall, stiff stems. Like all iris, it's a natural multiplier so will spread over a number of years. Plant it in bold drifts in a sunny, well-drained border.

  • 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.

"Oriental dark-red, with glimmering copper-gold beards and spots, on this strong robust iris -blend with other golds for summer shimmer"

If I buy the iris 'Sultan's Palace' now, will it flower this year? Thank you Kate

Kate

Hello, We can never guarantee that a plant will flower in a particular year, however I would say that there is an excellent chance that you will get some flowers in the first year.
