These beautiful naturalizing iris (Iris albicans) are aptly named “Cemetery Iris” as they have been thriving in cemeteries for years. Tough and beautiful, these spring-blooming, white bearded irises are great companions to roses. They thrive best in hardiness zone 5 and above, and areas that receive full or partial sun. 

Plant half the rhizome (it looks like a carrot) sideways into the side of a shallow trench, and cover only half of the horizontally-placed rhizome in soil. (The other half will need oxygen and exposure to root the whole rhizome, and the foliage should be vertical.) Upon arrival, they may appear shriveled, but they are still viable. A true true pass-along plant, they will spread and reproduce their entire lives. They are grown in our natural display garden by and for the Antique Rose Emporium, a treasure we are now happy to share with you.
