Description / Iris 'Albo Variegata'

Transform your garden with the enchanting Iris 'Albo Variegata' bulbs, best planted in late summer or fall. Watch as the following late spring to early summer unfolds in a burst of 3- to 5-inch soft lavender-blue flowers, adorned with delightful yellow beards. These fragrant blooms rise on tall 34-inch sturdy scapes, complemented by sword-shaped foliage that maintains its allure throughout the season. The leaves emerge in spring with a creamy yellow margin that fades to ivory as they mature. In warmer climates, the semi-evergreen foliage preserves its dramatic presence into fall or winter. Beyond their aesthetic charm, the flowers are a magnet for pollinators, particularly butterflies and hummingbirds. Create stunning, long-lasting spring bouquets with the elegant blooms.

'Albo Variegata', an Iris pallida variety, commonly known as bearded iris, sweet iris, or Dalmatian iris, boasts a clumping habit. While bearded iris bulbs are commonly grown as annuals, in suitable Zones, these rhizomatous plants multiply annually, making them ideal for naturalizing. For maximum impact, plant them in a large drift or in groups of 10 to 15 bulbs in mixed beds, borders, or containers.

The resilience of bearded iris makes it a joy to grow, virtually foolproof for any gardener. Cold-hardy and adaptable to various conditions, it performs best in sunny to partially shady locations with humusy, moist, well-draining soil. Iris 'Albo Variegata' is not only cold hardy but also salt tolerant, and more shade and drought tolerant compared to most bearded iris varieties. Plus, it's a reliable choice, resistant to deer and rabbits.
