Spuria Iris (SPUR)

Spuria Irises are probably the most under-appreciated Iris in the genus.

With a minimum of care and at least 6 hours of good sunshine, these beauties could be the garden star you have been looking for.

With sizes ranging from under 12 inches (I. sintenisii) to nearly 6 feet tall (Shelford Giant), there is a Spuria Iris for any sunny opening in your garden. They also come in a wide range of colors including yellow, blue, brown, and red-ish. The smaller species make nice compact clumps that bloom profusely. The taller hybrids tend to meander, so give them plenty of room.

Spuria Iris make excellent cut flowers.

Cut just before the first bud unfolds. Each bud on the stem will open in succession. The flower stalk is long-lasting once cut, remaining attractive up to 2 weeks in a vase. Spuria iris are also hummingbird and butterfly attractors. Please see the Growing Instructions for more information.

‘I’ve have ordered a large number of iris over the past couple years from Cascadia. Patrick and Margaret have been stellar to work with. I’m very picky and they have been able to accommodate my requests and also keep me very well educated on iris culture. All of their iris I ordered were healthy and strong—every one came back the next year. The pictures of their iris are very accurate as well—no weird color treating. I will continue to work with CIG in the future! Thank you Patrick and Margaret!’

Jeremy M. Overland Park, KS

"I have purchased Japanese Iris from Cascadia Iris Gardens for the past 3 years. I have always received very healthy iris, whether I purchased them spring or fall. I have never been disappointed. That is why I always come back. I am looking forward to seeing their 2018 selection."
