Iris is characterized by its solid leaves, like a sword. Beautiful flowers in the center, on the flowers handle, consist of three hanging petals. It’s favorite because of its unusual and rich flower, whose colors overlap similar to the rainbows. Iris loves dry, permeable soil, rich in humus. They like sunny positions and the spacing between plants should be 30-40 cm. Height depends on the kind and it could be 20-100cm. They don’t like stagnant water, which adversely affects them. The thick, fleshy rhizomes are planted very shallow into the ground covered only with 2-3 cm of the soil. Bulbous irises bloom from winter to mid-summer.
