One of the most amazing things as Spring approaches is seeing our garden waking up from its long winter’s nap. This weekend, we noticed that our irises are beginning to grow with their green leaves a couple inches out of the ground. Like little kids, my husband and I get so excited to see them because we know that they made it through another winter.
We also noticed that a group of irises that we divided and planted in another section of our garden are growing too!! Usually, our irises bloom in mid May and are simply beautiful.
Now there are a ton of varieties when it comes to irises. Our irises are called Bearded Irises, which come in a multitude of vibrant colors. They tend to grow 20-40 inches in height and bloom in mid spring and some rebloom in late summer. Irises do well in full sun to partial sun.
So, if you are looking for a new pop of color in your garden this Spring, wander around your garden center and take a look at irises!!!! You may fall in love with them just like we did.
