Immortality Iris Rhizomes

Immortality gets its moniker for being an early bloomer in the spring, then blooming again in late summer or early fall. Plus, its as white as the pure driven snow, smells divine, and looks absolutely terrific paired with literally any other Iris planted en masse, but allow us to suggest Wench and Black Mirror. To die for.

Iris are plants for the artist's garden, with striking blooms on tall stately stalks that intrigue from every angle and come in every color way imaginable. They are perfect for cutting, and spread gracefully to cover ever more garden space each year.

Growing Info
How to Plant Iris roots should be planted in the early fall. The most important thing here is - don't plant your new friend too deep or it won't flower! The rhizome looks like a bit of a long potato and has roots growing down from it, and the green foliage (which may be brown - this is normal) growing up. You want to plant it with the roots buried and pointing down, and the foliage growing up. The bulb part - the rhizome - should be about 5% visible above the soil line - do not bury it all the way. Now give your plant a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water, and wait until spring
Where to Plant Find a place with good well-draining soil (this is the most important part - the roots are prone to rot) and that gets mostly sun. Space plants about 12-24" apart. They will spread and multiply gradually
When to Plant Plant within a day or two of receiving your roots
When to Expect Blooms For a couple of glorious weeks in the early summer
Care Instructions Water deeply every couple of weeks during dry spells for the first year, being mindful not to over-water since Iris are prone to rot. After the first year they do not need any supplemental water
Extra Credit If you have hot summers, the Iris will still bloom well with some afternoon shade, and you can bury the rhizome almost completely to protect it from the heat
