Irises are showy due to the center upright petals known as standards, and the falls, or the lower petals that hang down. The Halston German Bearded Iris or Iris germanica 'Halston' is all the more stunning because it is a deep silky shade of purple. White accents on the flanges add more color and dimension. The flowers emerge in the spring, and the Halston German Bearded Iris blooms again in the fall for a repeat performance.

The Halston German Bearded Iris is a moderate grower with an upright, clump-forming growth habit. The blue-green, lance-shaped foliage provides a nice balance to the lovely flowers. Plant the Halston German Bearded Iris in beds or borders. The fragrant blooms also make excellent cut flowers. Select a spot close to a porch or patio so the sight and scent of the flowers can be enjoyed. Butterflies are drawn to the flowers, but deer and rabbits generally leave this iris alone. Grow this iris in zones 3 through 10.

Halston German Bearded Iris Care

Halston German Bearded Iris grows best in full to partial sun and moist, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic to alkaline. This plant has average water needs and once mature, only needs water during a dry period. Fertilize irises in the spring using a balanced plant food or a product with low nitrogen.

Remove faded flowers to encourage another flush of bloom near the end of summer or early fall. Trim back growth in the fall when the leaves fully die back. Traditionally, gardeners trim the foliage to create a triangle shape with the center leaves left taller than the outer foliage. A fall pruning removes any pests or fungi, ensuring a healthy growing season next spring.

Halston German Bearded Iris Spacing

The Halston German Bearded Iris will reach 20 to 30 inches tall and one to two feet across. Create a full and continuous planting by spacing these irises as close as 24 inches apart. Spread the plants 48 inches apart to introduce space and give the plants room to spread.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
