Growing Iris in Phoenix Arizona

dutch Iris

Iris tucked behind the Lamb's Ear (taken in April)

Iris Bloom

Iris bloomed at the end of April Iris

If I had known an Iris would live in Phoenix, I would have planted these years ago. I planted six "test" Iris in Feburary, so far all of them have come up and three have bloomed. I will update their progress. We planted another dozen Iris again in November and half of them were blooming by April.

The Iris is one of my favorite flowers and since it is thriving so well, I have continued to plant more each November. This year (2013) they had a spectacular display in March.
