I just got your mesage. I choose 20 or the  28" high tall bearded irises on Mid-America web site tall bearded iris section. Can I grow these tall variety in Phoenix or just some, or none of them? I wanted to post about 10 of the photos on here of the varieties I like the best but did not want to clog up the system.

            Those exotic iris are tall bearded iris, at least for the most part.  Paul Black of Mid-America Gardens has produced many fine iris and is a top quality iris nursery!

Hello, Keith


Tall Bearded irises do the best in the Phoenix area.  Spurias do well also.  The little ones, the medians, do not do well for me.  I would invite you to join the Sun Country Iris Club to learn all about irises and their culture in the desert.


Some varieties of the Tall Bearded irises do magnificently.  Others have problems in the heat.  We learn those mostly by trial and error.  Most do quite well.  They need deep watering every 10 days to two weeks.  Phosphate fertilizer only, no manure.
