His Royal Highness Tall Bearded Iris, more formally known as Iris Germanica ‘His Royal Highness’, is an elegant, tall Iris with ruffled, purple standards and falls, and yellow-splashed beards. His Royal Highness Irises are rebloomers, flowering twice a year, once in late spring, and again in early fall. They are lightly fragrant and grow from 24 to 30 inches tall. 

His Royal Highness Irises are deer and rabbit resistant and relatively drought tolerant. They are a superb choice for any cut-flower garden, mass planted in natural or woodland gardens, and interspersed along borders or walkways. His Royal Highnesses are named for their bold, royal coloring, and are a favorite of growers worldwide. 

His Royal Highness Tall Bearded Iris Care

His Royal Highness Irises need slightly acidic soil with good drainage to thrive. The ideal pH for your bearded irises is 6.8 to 7.0. Do not spread mulch around your Irises. Late summer to fall is the best planting period for these Irises. In cold-winter zones, plant during July or August; in hot zones, plant in September or October. Bearded Irises need full sun in colder climates, but can tolerate dappled shade in the hottest regions. For optimal performance and longevity, in the spring, after the first bloom, feed your irises with moderate-nitrogen plant food or fertilizer.

Irises of all kinds are vulnerable to Iris Borers. Larvae chew holes in the leaves and tunnel into the plant, causing structural and cosmetic damage to the plant. This can be managed by removing affected roots and foliage as quickly as possible, as well as by clearing the bed of past foliage at the end of the growing season. It also helps deadhead blooms after they have faded. Irises work well as dried flowers, too!

His Royal Highness Tall Bearded Iris Spacing

Irises should be spaced 1 to 2 feet apart, set with the tops of their rhizomes barely beneath the soil surface. His Royal Highness Tall Bearded Irises bloom after dwarf irises and before Japanese and Siberian Irises. Group them together to enjoy color all season long. These Irises can also be grown in pots and containers of 12 inches or larger, with excellent drainage.

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.
