Irises are one of the earliest blooming and easiest perennial flowers to grow.

Most of the more than 300 species worldwide are hardy throughout the USA, and are widely adapted to various soil and sun conditions.

By combining different types of irises, you can have them in bloom from early spring right into the summer.

The iris's history is rich, dating back to Ancient Greek times when the Greek Goddess Iris, the messenger of the gods and the personification of the rainbow, acted as the link between heaven and earth. 

Purple irises were planted over the graves of women to summon the Goddess to guide the dead in their journey.

Iris bulbs are hardy enough to plant outdoors, but you can also plant them in pots that are kept indoors!

When iris bulbs are grown indoors, they experience a longer blooming season.

Why?

Because you can regulate the temperature.

In addition, indoor irises will not be eaten by pests such as deer, squirrels, gophers or your eccentric neighbor.

Do not overwater irises!

Too much moisture in the soil can cause the rhizomes to rot. 

Though you still are asked by your Iris to water it consistently and deeply, especially during summer droughts.

It is important to keep the rhizomes exposed

Hold on, am I attending science class, what is a rhizome?

In botany and dendrology (the study of trees), a rhizome is a modified subterranean plant stem that sends out roots and shoots from its nodes.

Rhizomes are also called creeping rootstalks, or just rootstalks.

Rhizomes develop from axillary buds and grow horizontally.

The rhizome also retains the ability to allow new shoots to grow upwards.

Unlike bulbs, which thrive deep underground, bearded iris rhizomes need a bit of sun and air to dry them out.
