Tall Bearded (TB)
Over 27” tall
From Grandma's old iris to the newest hybrids, Tall Bearded irises (TB) bloom season will be the highlight of your perennial bed. TBs offer a variety of color and pattern that will work with any garden theme. Many are fragrant as an added bonus.
We apologize for the smaller selection this year. Thank you to all of you Covid Gardeners out there who cleaned us out last year. Hopefully we will have our stock rebuilt by 2022!

This is probably my favorite Tall Bearded iris. It has immaculate form, perfect ruffling and the colors are crisp, clean and really draw you in.
(Farr, 1922) 30"
Impossible to describe, but here I go. Purple and white. Sometimes wants to be a flatty (6 falls, no standards), sometimes not. Sometimes it has a light lavender broken color streak, sometimes not.
We generally do not grow antique bearded irises, but this one has grabbed our hearts and will not let go. It is always fun to see what variation each flower will give us.
