Iris germanica ‘Harvest of Memories’ (Harvest of Memories Tall Bearded Iris)

Bright, lemon yellow blooms, with 3 petals standing up and the rest generally hanging down, and bright green leaves will add a cheerful look to your garden. An abundance of flowers will appear in late spring with a second round of blooms in late-summer, early fall. Harvest of Memories Tall Bearded Iris will grow stems that arch upright up to 85 cm (35 in.) tall with a base up to 60 cm (25 in.) round. This iris gives off a light, sweet aroma that delights even the most sensitive of sniffers.

Locate a sunny spot in the garden to plant a ‘Harvest of Memories’ iris. It can handle some shade and prefers zones 3-9 and well-drained soil. Deer and rabbits will resist eating this iris as the flavour does not suit their taste buds. Be sure to remove the spent flowers in spring for a strong re-bloom in fall and cut plants back to about 15 cm (6 in.) after the second round of blooms before winter frost.

Some say the three upright petals on an iris bloom stand for faith, wisdom, and valour.
