Bearded Irises and Companion Plants - Salmon Pink 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 salmon-pink, includes 2 fabulous Tall Bearded Irises, 'Beverly Sills' (Early Midseason) and 'Lotus Land' (Midseason), the architectural white Allium 'Mt Blanc', the tall Lupine 'Noble Maiden', the incredibly pretty Dahlia 'Surprise', Asiatic Lily 'Rosella's Dream' and the delightfully fragrant English Rose 'Benjamin Britten'.

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

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