June Irises (Iris) 六月的鳶尾
Stunning in elegance! So colorful and easy to grow, you can see many gardeners enjoy them so much. Always in full sun location, well-drained soil. Easy to propagate by its rhizomes, bulbs or seeds.
Iris this genus has many different species, also even in same species has many different varieties. Some have rhizomes, some have bulbs, some are tall, some are rather dwarf. When you use fertilizer, do not use high in phosphate if necessary–otherwise it will make flowers too big and heavy and you will have to stake them.
If you are going to get Irises for your garden, you should consider to get re-blooming Irises. They have many varieties to pick from and they bloom at least twice to four times a year!
優雅燦爛! 花色多彩又易栽培,廣受種花人的喜愛故庭園處處可見. 必須在全日照處,排水佳的土壤中種植花才會多且美.
鳶尾屬下有很多種,每一個種又有許多品種. 有的是根莖類的,有的是球莖類的. 植株上有的高,也有矮性的. 使用肥料時非必要不要用高磷比例的肥料–要不然容易造成花太大太重而需要支撐.
Thanks! They are very nice!
It is always nice to see them in a group!
Thank you so much. I have planted my first this spring but you have made me realise that they may not be in a sunny enough spot!
You are welcome! If they are not in full sun location, they will live but will not flower. I hope you did buy the re-blooming varieties. The re-blooming varieties is very popular now, they at least bloom once in spring and once in fall, some even bloom 4 times a year! It is worthy to take more time and money to buy those for sure!
This was my first attempt, so if they fail, I will make sure that I try again in a better location, with more sun. It is so wet here in the winter, so that is another eason that they may nor be happy.
I have bought a black iris called “Night Owl", I do so love black flowers.
I bought another Iris the other day which the lady I bought it from said was easier to grow and did not mind some shade. I can not remember what it is called, but it was smaller that the big Iris and had two flower heads on each stem. It is a beautiful blue.
Sorry, I know that is not helpful!
I have seen Iris ‘Night Owl’, it is a beautiful Iris. I do not trust what nurseries staff’s words because they just want to make a sale. I have experimented my own many species of Irises and result is all the same.– Not enough sun, no flower. 😦 But I do wish you luck! 🙂

Iris is so elegant!
I love the multi-coloured varieties, Irises are such an easy and rewarding plant to grow!
Yes, indeed! 🙂 Grow reblooming varieties is even better! They can bloom 2 – 4 times a year!
