Iris is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Iridaceae, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere and parts of tropical Africa. Iris species are commonly grown as ornamental garden plants.
The word “iris” comes from the Latin word “iris” meaning rainbow. It is an ancient name for the flower that represents the rainbow. The flowers are produced in a wide variety of colors including blue, violet, yellow, red, white, purple, and mauve.
Well-drained soil - need well-drained fertile soil that releases the water fast but remains moist at the same time.A sunny area - Irises can also be grown in partial shade, but you will notice that they grow slowly.
Regular watering - Watering your irises can be done by using either a soaker hose or by placing the plants in a large bucket filled with water. Fertilizer - You can use a garden fertilizer or you can add a compost tea to the soil.
Drainage holes in a pot - If you are growing your irises in pots, you will need to make sure that you use drainage holes in the bottom of the pot.Proper air circulation - Air circulation is critical for proper water and nutrient absorption and distribution throughout the plant.
An iris does not need much care at all. When it is time for planting, you simply dig a hole and plant the bulbs. The bulb will begin to grow roots at the bottom of the hole, which can be planted in either the fall or spring.
