Iris spuria 'New Hybrids'
New Hybrids are exactly that - a wide range of colors from dozens of the top new Iris spuria cultivars.
We may have a unique plant amongst the selection as these were a seed mix from an established German breeder.
Spuria iris are the tallest of the Iris family but rarely require staking. Being large they are quite hungry plants that appreciate a mulch of well rotted manure in spring or feeding with a balanced fertiliser. To establish they require soil enriched with plenty of organic matter in order to retain some moisture but still provide adequate drainage.
They prefer to be on the dry side so full sun is preferred. Unlike most iris they resent disturbance so leave clumps for many years before division.
As a species are less commonly grown than other members of the Iris family but no less beautiful for that.
