Details

Bearded Iris Sheer Ecstasy (Iris germanica Sheer Ecstasy) are spellbinding and mesmerizing, with deep magenta-violet petals are tickled by tangerine centers and beards. This rich color combo makes Bearded Iris Sheer Ecstasy a real garden star. Plant them in well-drained soil in a sun-to-part shade location. The intense raspberry color mixes well with other Bearded Iris. Try planting Irises with different bloom times to extend the season of blooms in your garden. Snap off spent flowers as they pass and once a stem is done blooming, cut it back. The sword-like green foliage will continue to add an architectural element to your garden all season long. Easy care, just fertilize in the spring with an organic bulb fertilizer (We recommend Yum Yum Mix) and with bone meal in the fall. Cut back the foliage after the first frost to about six inches. In late spring, you will once again enjoy the rich colors of Bearded Iris Sheer Ecstasy.

Q & A

Suggested Companion Plants:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
