Iris 'Earl of Essex'

Iris 'Earl of Essex' Tall Bearded Iris

Common Name: Tall Bearded Iris

This rebloomer is an example of a plicata Iris, or an Iris with stitched, stippled, or banded colors that contrast with the base color, usually yellow or white. In this instance, ‘Earl of Essex’ has a white base color, with orchid violet veining and stippling on the edges. Pale orange beards are infused with pale violet. Strong rebloomer to zone 4.

No garden would be complete without Tall Bearded Irises. Though they have been grown for decades, new and improved hybrids continue to be developed every year and fabulous color combinations have been achieved. The Tall Beardeds bloom after the Dwarf Irises but before the Japanese and Siberian Irises. They are wonderful accent plants for late spring gardens.
