Comments about High Country Gardens Iris germanica Paul Black:

It's my own fault. I know the description says purple, and I even asked customer service to verify the color of the blooms. I believed from the photo that it would be a deep, navy/midnight type of blue purple. And it was really just a true purple when it bloomed in my yard.
Not a big deal, I love Iris in any color, I just would have planted it in a different spot if I had known it was not a blue purple. I was excited about adding it with some merchant marine blue Iris and some mango entrée orange/yellow iris for a particular combination.
I planted these August 2016 following the instructions and giving them very little care after a few initial waterings. Spring 2017 they produced beautiful, healthy blooms. I'm sure it will continue to be more prolific each season.

    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).
