The White African Iris is the perfect way to add a touch of the exotic to your landscape without ever leaving your backyard!
African white Iris plants are at home in any garden, offering aesthetic value and a dramatic flair with their beautiful white flowers with yellow accents. These versatile plants are often called a Fortnight Lily because they bloom in bursts with a two-week cycle of down time. You may see flowers in early spring or fall.
The flowering stems of the African Iris are perennial, so you don’t need to cut back the flower stalks after flowering as you might for most other iris-like plants. Once established, the White African Iris can handle poor, dry soils, but will do best in a well-drained soil with regular watering during the growing season.
Reduce watering and fertilizing after flowering. The white blooms do not like standing water or wet soil. Deadheading spent flowers after bloom will encourage new growth.
Dietes iridioides can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide in full sun. African irises are a great statement piece in your garden beds. Prefers warmer climates across the United States in USDA planting zones 8-11.
