German Iris Blush Hour

German Iris Blush Hour

Known as a "reverse amoena" type, Blush Hour German iris features pink standards atop white falls with green veining—a highly artistic look indeed. Plus, this lovely variety taunts passersby with an abundance of lacing and flounce, giving it even greater appeal in the landscape or garden. Bright orange beards add a little pop of bright color to the subtle blooms. A vigorous cultivar, each bulb produces up to 7 buds per stem—plenty for both outdoor and indoor enjoyment. Strong 33-35" stems are the ideal height for borders and bouquets.
