Native to central and southern Europe, spuria Irises are one of the tallest of irises, reaching a height of 3-5 ft or more (90-150 cm). Generally blooming 1 to 2 weeks after the Tall Bearded Irises, spuria irises are elegant rhizomatous perennials with attractive beardless flowers with slim standards and falls, up to 6 in. wide (15 cm). Graceful, the flowers exist in a wide range of colors, including bicolors, bitones and halos, and provide a striking display in late spring to early summer. Growing in clumps with handsome narrow linear leaves to 1 ft. long (30 cm), they add drama to the garden and will reward you with beautiful blooms and long-lasting cut flowers.
