Item details

Handmade

Perennial - Zones 3 to 8
* Seeds per package - 25 Seeds
* Bloom Time - Late Spring
* Bloom Color - Violet blue
* Size - 2' to 3' tall
* Culture - Full to part sun. Provide a dusting of bone meal when you are planting flag iris. Be sure to water your plants liberally if the soil begins to dry out. Although flag irises are hardy and will tolerate spells of dry weather, they prefer to be moist. Provide a 2-inch layer of mulch to protect plants and help retain moisture.
* Characteristics - Blue Flag has classic violet-blue iris blooms on stalks growing from 2 to 3 feet. The flowers are up to 4" across, making it very showy for a wildflower. It's native from Canada down to Virginia, and west to Minnesota. Blue Flag can be successfully grown wherever there is a strong winter freeze.
* Special Features - As with all irises, growing them from seed is not difficult, but may take some time. The plant must create its bulky roots before it can bloom. Leaves are narrow and sword-shaped.
* Germination - Plant seeds in the fall (or store in a cold place until spring planting). Be sure to mark your seeds as the seedlings look like grass! Seeds that don't sprout the first year, may the second, so don't disturb your seedlings the first year. Seedlings will not bloom the first year but should the second year ~ enjoy!
