Irises: Plant Now For Best Results

We’re giving you 20% off irises at D Avenue Nursery right now, just in time for Fall planting season.

This June bloomer does best when it’s planted during night temperatures are consistently around 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit or above, which ensures their roots can become well established before the winter months.

Make sure you plant these beauties somewhere that will get full-moderate sun exposure to ensure the best blooms (irises can’t bloom without sun). Neutral or slightly acidic soil with good drainage is best for irises, which have rhizomal root structure.

When planting irises dig a shallow hole about 4-5 inches deep, leaving a ridge of soil along the middle. For best results, allow rhizomes to fall on either side of the ridge and then cover the hole with soil.
