Wherever you plant them, make sure it is a highly visible area so that the beautiful flowers will be on full display.

Pleasant Peasant Bearded Iris Care
Plant Pleasant Peasant Bearded Iris in full sun to partial shade. This plant will do best with at least 5 hours of sunlight, so select a spot with more sun than shade. Irises are tolerant of most soil types, but this plant must have well-draining soil. This plant has average water needs, so water weekly or when the top couple of inches of soil feels dry. Apply a 10-10-10 or 6-10-10 fertilizer during the early spring, and again, midsummer after the first flush of flowers die back.
Remove spent flowers after the first bloom cycle to clean up the plant and to help encourage a second flush. After the second round of blooms is complete in the fall, remove dead growth and cut back the remaining foliage to about six inches. Divide the rhizomes when the plant outgrows its space.
Pleasant Peasant Bearded Iris Spacing
As an upright plant, the Pleasant Peasant Bearded Iris will reach 30 to 34 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Plants can be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart to create a continuous planting or give the plants more room to create a focal point.
