This multiple award-winning Iris has it all. Iris germanica ‘Millennium Falcon’ (Bearded Iris) is simply breathtaking with streaked early summer flowers that will steal the show and harmonize with other early bloomers. Lavender and light-blue standards top smooth falls, which feature a sharp contrast of royal violet and crisp white. Lightly fragrant, it is stunning in waterwise gardens, is low-maintenance, deer resistant, and beautiful in cut flower arrangements too.

Iris germanica ‘Millennium Falcon’ (Bearded Iris) is a relatively new selection that showcases the spectacular possibilities of hybridizing. 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. 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. ‘Millennium Falcon’ Bearded Iris received an American Iris Society Honorable Mention in 2002, an Award of Merit in 2004, and the highest honor, the Wister Medal in 2008.
