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).

Details
(33-37" tall x 12-24"  wide) 'Funday Monday' Fragrant Bearded Iris is a late-spring star with ruffled, colorful petals with a complex, velvety look. Green sword-shaped foliage adds an extra note of interest all summer long. A prolific bloomer, it has sturdy stems with 3 branches and 5-7 buds per branch. Plant extra for bouquet-ready cut flowers.  Blooming from late-spring to early-summer at a height of 33-37" tall, 'Funday Monday' blends nicely into a perennial bed and is a great choice behind geranium or Nepeta. Consider planting them with Digitalis, Baptisia, and Salvia for a harmonious look. While we enjoy its soothing scent, deer and rabbits stay away. Drought-tolerant once established, plant it in enriched, well-draining garden soil in a sunny location. Bearded Iris will multiply over a few years, creating increasing stands of flowers. Dig them every 3-4 years, separate, replant and enjoy even more Iris.
