Sheer Ecstasy Bearded Iris (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.
