Grace your mid to late spring garden with exquisite Stairway to Heaven Irises. This award-winning breed produces 8 to 10 buds per stalk, which open to present glorious ruffled white standards and heavenly blue falls, reminiscent of white clouds drifting across a brilliant blue sky. These exquisitely coloured irises make wonderful cut flowers to bring springtime indoors.

Tall bearded iris (Iris germanica) are hardy from zones 4 to 9. They prefer well-drained soil but tolerate a range of clay, sandy and loamy soil types. We recommend that you plant the rhizomes in mid to late summer. Place them 1 to 2 feet apart and 1 inch deep in an area that gets full to half sun. These 35- to 36-inch tall perennial irises rise on sturdy stalks and will spread between 18 and 24 inches.

These beautiful white and blue irises are versatile in the garden. Good companion plants for an elegant formal garden include peonies, early blooming roses and Spanish bells. For a cheery cottage garden, try hyacinths, tulips and the brightness of nodding daffodils. Place these beauties in flower beds, borders, woodland areas, in front of fences and hedges and along walkways. Bring the loveliness of Stairway to Heaven Iris to your garden for an impressive springtime display.
