Megabucks Bearded Iris (Iris germanica Megabucks) is rich in jewel-toned yellow-gold standards with fuchsia-rose falls edged in a coppery hue. At 32-38" tall, this late spring to early summer bloomer has sturdy, well branched stems with 8-9 double socketed buds, ensuring a dramatic display. Easy to grow, plant them in a sun to part shade spot (at least ½ day of sun) with good drainage. They will grow and multiply creating a beautiful drift of color in the late spring garden. Plant with Oriental Poppies or Salvia ‘Little Night’ for an eye-catching, colorful spread. Deadhead the spent blooms by popping them off with a thumb and cut back the flower stems when blooming is finished. The strong vertical leaves will continue to add a nice element to your garden all season long.
