Miscellaneous and Small Bulbs
IRIS, GERMAN BEARDED Top Size rhizomes
These beautiful rhizomatous iris have well- developed standards and falls with a prominent furry beard in the center of each fall petal. Their large multiple blooms 4" to 6" across appear in early summer, held on simple branched stems surrounded by fans of broad, sword- shaped leaves. The thick, fleshy rhizomes are best planted in late summer to early fall. They do not like wet feet and are actually quite drought tolerant. Our top size rhizomes are shipped from mid-August through September. [Ht: 30"-40", Bl: L, Zones: 3 to 9, S/SSH, 9/sq. yd.]

LILIUM CANDIDUM #LY21
“Madonna Lily” Size: 20cm/up In cultivation since the time of the Minoans, 1500 years before the birth of Christ, this lily probably reached western Europe via Phoenician traders. From there it quickly natural-
ized throughout much of the continent. The outwardly facing, pure white flowers with yellow throats adorn tall stems in early summer and gently perfume the garden. Each 2 to 5 foot stem holds 8 to 15 funnel-shaped florets. Unlike other lilies, L. candidum is not stem- rooting and should be planted with the top of the bulb only a few inches below the soil’s surface. They make new growth in fall.
