The pure lavender petals have extremely laced around the edges, creating a rim of frills that enhances the whole bloom. The colour gradually fades towards yellow tipped, white beards. A nicely scented, tall bloom.
Bearded irises need to be planted with the rhizome, or root, just above the soil. This is because the rhizome needs to be baked by the sun in order to form flowers. Make sure that there is not too much competition from surrounding plants and remove any weeds.
