Grey-lavender Blooms with Magenta Spots!

A Standard Dwarf Bearded with exceptional blooms!
Posing is a delightful Dwarf Bearded Iris with highly unusual lavender-gray coloring marked with burgundy and gold. It makes a terrific companion to traditional blue, purple, and white Irises, its quieter color standing out in beautiful contrast. Blooming about a month before its Tall Bearded cousins, it is an excellent foreground planting to taller Iris, as well as a good friend to Daffodils and Daylilies in the sunny border.

Posing reaches about 14 inches high, with large, striking blooms atop sturdy stems. Expect them to open in mid-spring in most climates, getting Bearded Iris season off to a beautiful start.

This Iris pumila variety was bred by Blyth and Barry, and offers a subtle fragrance as well as handsome sword-shaped leaves and big flowers. Best in full sun, it tolerates a wide range of soils provided the drainage is good. Let it naturalize over time, dividing it every few years into several smaller plants for quicker, more vigorous growth. So easy, so beautiful! Zones 3 to 8.
