A pleasant surprise blooming today! Bearded Iris "Holy Night"

11 years ago

This is a bearded iris known as "Holy Night" - it's the 4th time it has bloomed this year. I just love it when I get surprise blooms from things, but I never would have expected this! It must be some kind of record or something. I even transplanted these things in the beginning of summer!

It receives partial shade during the hottest part of the day. I made the mistake of planting the rhizomes on the surface, but it's clear that with the sandy soil they should be buried a little bit deeper. Our FL climate is unlike most of Florida - we don't receive a whole lot of rain out here. I would recommend giving Holy Night a try in Florida if you've ever wanted to give irises a try. :)
