In this comprehensive and definitive guide, iris expert Kelly Norris provides an accessible yet authoritative overview of these deservedly popular plants. introductory chapters show how to grow successfully, how to use them in the garden, how to choose the best plants, and how to "create" new irises.
A Guide to Bearded Irises also provides portraits of the most outstanding plants in each of the six recognized categories, from the dainty miniature dwarf bearded irises to the stately tall bearded irises. A helpful resource section lists specialty nurseries, organizations devoted to bearded irises, and public gardens with notable iris collections.
