Bearded Irises and Companion Plants - Peach & Purple Theme

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


Diva of the late spring garden, Bearded Irises grow and show well in any garden setting that meets their cultural needs. Pairing them with companion plants such as perennials, flower bulbs or even ornamental grasses, accent each other in shape, texture, height or color and enhance the beauty of your borders.

This plant combination, in shades of soft peach and purple, includes 3 fabulous Tall Bearded Irises with different flowering seasons for a longer display, 'Poesie' (Early Midseason), 'Mary Frances' (Midseason) and 'Celebration Song' (Early Midseason to Late), the architectural Sword-Lily 'Ben Venuto' (Gladiolus), the tall Lupine 'Purple swirl' (Lupinus), the incredibly pretty peony 'Coral Charm' (Paeonia), Mullein 'Jackie' (Verbascum) and the delightful Oriental Poppy 'Prinzessin Victoria Louise' (Papaver Orientale).

Adding splashes of color in your late spring garden, this pairing will lengthen your bloom display and provide weeks of color until early-mid summer.

Most plants make excellent fresh cut flowers that can be pleasantly enjoyed at home!
