Iris germanica (Tall Bearded Iris). Grow from bulbs/rhizomes.There are hundreds of species with the majority blooming in spring & early summer. After 3-4 yrs. the clumps become crowded & don't bloom well. Dig them out & divide them to start new clumps.


The Blue Iris is the state flower of Tennessee. As I was growing up, I looked forward to their showy colors every Spring.

Starship Enterprise Iris

STARSHIP ENTERPRISE -- TB iris, mid to late bloom, 36", white standards surrounded with rosy magenta ringed falls, with golden beards and midribs and stylearms.

These dutch irises actually grow from bulbs not corms, not that it matters. I take the corm and bulb flowers for this board.
