MY FIRST BLUE IRIS

After long time I did 'irises hunting', finally I found an online nursery that sold irises.
I was so interested, so I ordered it soon.
I ordered four varieties; white, yellow, light blue and blue flowered iris.
Three days later, the irises were arriving.
I was so happy...
But I couldn't planted them soon.
I found a flower bud in a clump.
And now it's blooming...


This is my first 'real iris'.
I have a kind of yellow iris on my garden before but it's different from the' ordinary iris'.
You can see my yellow iris here.


I can stop to notice this beautiful flower.
As a new plant for me, it's really interesting.
I think it's the light blue variety, what a shame the nursery didn't give name tag on each plant.


I hope the next flowers will bloom continues.
Readers, please share me how to grow iris well.
Thank you for sharing.

  3. If it is a bearded iris growing from a tuber- the tuber needs to be exposed on the surface of the soil

  5. Very pretty! There are many different types of iris. I would ask the nursery you bought it from for the Latin name so you can look up what kind of growing conditions it likes. I think it will want moist soil.
