Reblooming Bearded Iris Pure As Gold
DetailsRe-Blooming Bearded Iris ‘Pure as Gold’ (Iris germanica ‘Pure as Gold’) is a garden must-have. The rich, saturated yellow flowers draw the eye and gently spotlight what’s around it. Plant it where you’d like to draw attention – near ornamental grasses or long-blooming perennials. Their appearance in spring and again in fall will brighten your world. This multiple award-winning Bearded Iris is easy- care and drought tolerant once established. Plant them in well-drained average soil with the tops of the rhizomes exposed, in a sunny location. They will spread out and multiply over the years paying you back in blooms for your effort. Pollinator friendly; deer and rodents avoid them.

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).
