Eye of the Tiger Iris are boldly colored with purple/blue petals accented by lower gold and yellow petals. They bloom in early summer and love full sun or half shade. They are best planted in loamy soil in the fall time and reach a height of 20-24".
Planting zone: 5-9
If planting in the garden, plant a single bulb or group of 3 about 1-2 feet apart. If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
Plant 4 inches deep into the soil.
Fertilize in the spring with a well-balanced fertilizer when signs of growth appear. Keep the plants well watered during the growth period. It’s best to water at ground level to minimize fungal diseases and flower discoloration. Maintain a layer of mulch to keep the soil cool and maintain moisture, but keep the mulch away from the stems to prevent rot.
