The white and purple petals of the Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris are bound to make a statement wherever you grow it. Botanically known as Iris germanica 'Mariposa Autumn', this iris grows to around 24 to 30 inches tall and produces green sword-like foliage for vertical interest. Flowering in spring, the added bonus of the Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris is that it is a rebloomer and flowers longer than many others.

The Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris is a clump-forming perennial that will rebloom year after year. Deer and rabbit resistant, this iris is perfect for both urban and rural locations. Once planted, this bearded iris will develop drought tolerance and require minimal maintenance. Being tall, the Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris is best suited to the middle of an herbaceous border or cut flower patch. 

Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris Care

To grow well and produce the best blooms, the Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris should be planted in moist, yet free-draining soil in full sun. Good drainage is a must, as waterlogged or heavy soils can lead to the rhizomes rotting. Fertilize with a general-purpose feed in spring, and divide clumps every 3 to 4 years. Mariposa is suitable for growing in USDA zones 3 to 8

Removing spent blooms will encourage reblooming. Plant the rhizome so the top is above soil level to expose it to sunlight and prevent rotting.

Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris Spacing

In the right conditions, the Mariposa Autumn Bearded Iris can grow to 24 to 30 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. A spacing of around 18 inches will allow the plants to fill in over time.

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.
