‘Dame de Coeur’ Bearded Iris is a lovely addition to the mid-spring garden. Standing at 35 inches tall, it’s a great choice for the back of a bed or where height will add dimension and interest. The fragrant raspberry-pink flowers highlighted with gold tones and tangerine beards would be a suitable addition for almost any planting arrangement, and will even stand alone as a focal point. Easy to grow, plant them in a sunny spot with good drainage, in groups of three or more for best interest. Keep the top of the rhizomes exposed or even with the top of the soil. Once established, Bearded Irises are drought-tolerant, deer resistant, and rabbit resistant, and will spread and multiply when happy. Reblooming Bearded Irises will bloom a second time, as long as the soil, climate, and garden conditions are well suited. Once flowers have faded, this versatile plant’s eye-catching vertical foliage will continue to enhance the perennial garden. Plant with ornamental grasses and other water-thrifty, late spring bloomers such as Allium and Oriental Poppies. Lavender, Gaillardia, Echinacea, and Salvia will benefit from the striking foliage as a backdrop.
