There are 2 main groups of irises: rhizomatous and bulbous. The bulbous irises bloom in late spring, while the rhizomatous irises bloom during summer.

Rhizomatous irises:

Grown from rhizomes (a type of bulb) and can be further divided into 3 categories:

  • Bearded: Bearded irises are the most widely grown and get their name from the prominent ‘beard’ of white or colored hairs in the center of each fall (outer surrounding petals). Many varieties will produce multiple flowers per stem and are available in a wide range of colors.
  • Beardless: Beardless irises include the Siberian, Japanese, Pacific Coast and Louisiana types, and all have smooth falls. Siberian irises are known to be highly adaptable and a good choice for low maintenance mixed borders. Japanese and Louisiana varieties are better suited for moist to wet soils, while the Pacific Coast varieties are best in milder climates with winter rain and drier summers.
  • Crested: Crested irises do well in full sun or partial shade areas in moist, humus-rich soil.

Bulbous irises:

This group includes the Dutch hybrids and the smaller reticulated or dwarf irises. They all shed their leaves after the blooming season and go into a dormant phase over summer. Dutch hybrids tend to bloom earlier than the tall bearded rhizomatous varieties and are the well-known variety featured in florist’s spring bouquets. Reticulated irises are well-suited for growing in groups, but should be divided every two to three years to prevent overcrowding. They are also good for rock gardens and forcing in pots.

Landscaping Ideas

A stunning sight is several of these small shrubs planted together in a mass planting. Set it at the base of tall dark green evergreens or other dark foliage plants.

This small shrub is also ideal in a container. Set out matching ones by your front door or on your deck for an inviting look. The flowers set off the foliage even more all summer long with their pristine white petals.
