Ragtop Re-blooming Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) is a showstopper in every way! From the top of its icy white standards with a hint of blue to the bold orange-red beard, to the delicate ultramarine falls infused with purple with a light, delicate penciling around the edges. This was a reblooming Bearded Iris found only in our dreams until its appearance in 2014. The intense colors complemented by the sheer white standards makes a truly unique and unusual statement that will amaze garden viewers.

Size Bareroot Plant


Ragtop Re-blooming Bearded Iris (Iris germanica) will make your garden the talk of the town. At 32-38" tall, Iris germanica Ragtop is a great addition to a perennial bed in a sun-to-part shade location. Its deep, rich coloration contrasted by the white standards make a garden statement that belies the fact that it is easy to grow, water-thrifty, deer resistant, and pollinator friendly. Blooming first in June and then again in late summer/early fall, the arrival of Iris Ragtop Day will become a cause for celebration in your garden. Plant with roses, Oriental poppies or other summer blooming perennials. The rhizomes (roots) will multiply over the years. When the plant gets compacted, cut them back after blooming and gently dig them up. Separate the rhizomes so that each has some leaves and replant them, create new plantings and share with fellow gardeners – they will thank you and you will enjoy seeing Bearded Iris Ragtop Day find its way through the neighborhood.

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).
