A Guide to Bearded Irises: Cultivating the Rainbow for Beginners and Enthusiasts
By Kelly D. Norris
The diversity of bearded irises rivals that of any other perennial grown in temperate climates. For some gardeners, they bring back warm memories of a grandparent's garden; for others, they're a cutting-edge plant with a seemingly endless capacity for producing new forms and patterns.
In this comprehensive and definitive guide, iris expert Kelly Norris provides an accessible yet authoritative overview of these deservedly popular plants. Introductory chapters show how to grow successfully, how to use them in the garden, how to choose the best plants, and how to "create" new irises. A Guide to Bearded Irises
also provides portraits of the most outstanding plants in each of the six recognized categories, from the dainty miniature dwarf bearded irises to the stately tall bearded irises. A resource section lists specialty nurseries, organizations devoted to bearded irises, and public gardens with notable iris collections.
