Iris Germanic, commonly called German Iris, is the presumed father of most modern bearded iris cultivars, of which there are now thousands to enjoy. German Iris has no bulb, as it spreads by creeping rhizomes that form large clumps over time. There are now so many cultivars to choose from that it is often difficult to choose which variety you like best. They perennialize and naturalize very well, with little to no effort. Bearded Iris bloom descriptions consist of falls, beards, and standards and become quite technical, especially by iris lovers. Let's just enjoy them for what they are - showy, fragrant perennials that are both deer and drought resistant. Pink Attraction is a superb variety that blooms twice a year and was chosen for it unique coloring. Best planted in fall. Plant rhizomes horizontally so that the top is about half an inch above soil level. In hot areas of the country, they can be planted just below the soil level. Initially water deeply during periods of drought. After flowering, cut out the flower stalk, leaving the foliage. To prolong optimal results, they may need to be dug, divided, and replanted every 3-6 years. Best to Google how to go about this.
