Minimum of two Iris per order
A superb Iris on very tall stems, the flowers are a contrasting rich velvet mahogany on the falls and iron coloured ruffled standards. Tom Stuart-Smith used this Iris in his 'best in show garden' at Chelsea 2006 to great acclaim, making Iris 'Supreme Sultan' very popular. This iris looks wonderful with a rich tapestry of deep purples, blue and greens. Height 1M.

Planting Open Close
Iris like a very well drained soil and lots of sunshine to bake their rhizomes, this will help to produce more flower spikes the following year. They should not sit with their 'feet' in water, as they will not root.
The rhizomes should be placed on the soil surface preferable in a north south orientation with the foliage end pointing north and the rhizome facing south. The rhizomes should then be gently "snuggled" down so that less than half of the rhizome is buried.
Keep other plants from covering the rhizomes as they need to bake in the sun. Water in well for the first month to allow the roots to develop. Cut back spent foliage in late summer and split every 3 years for great flowering.
