Comments about High Country Gardens Iris germanica Immortality:
Sometimes flowers advertised as "white" are actually yellowish cream, light green, palest purple or some other not exactly white color. Not this time!
The immortality bearded iris is a TRUE white.
Not only that, I planted 2017 and unlike some iris germanica which take a full growing season to establish and then finally produce blooms the following year...this beauty was very early in 2018 to flower in its first growing season...even before other established bearded iris!
And this is a truly HARDY plant; I planted on a slope at the edge of our hot, clay base and gravel driveway, with heavy deer grazing. Other plants have been devoured or died of heat and malnourishment, while immortality thrives.
I guess it lives up to its name!

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).
