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.

如果你要買鳶尾來種最好考慮買續開的鳶尾品種來種,品種花色有不少可以選擇且一年可開2到4次.
