Iris germanica "Iris Maggiore".
It is the traditional iris or iris, symbol of the city of Florence, which stands out for its large flowers with a characteristic violet-blue colour.
It grows spontaneous in the arid and rocky places in Italy and all Europe until the Balkans, but for centuries it is cultivated also in the gardens and in the garden.
The floriferous stem can reach a height of 1 m.

Blooming in April-May. Then the plant enters a resting phase that dries most of the long silvery leaves, while keeping alive the large superficial rhizomes.

It has a fast and bushy growth up to take on the character of weed.
Durable, sturdy plant with no growing problem.
It grows in any kind of terrain.

Strong and flashy color, very suitable to be planted isolated or to contrast with the irises with the softest colors. Quickly covers empty areas in the flowerbeds.

The plants are part of a personal collection, for hobbies and great passion in the selected time, multiplied and cultivated by me, in a natural way and without forcing.
The photo published is of the mother plant in bloom in my garden.

The Iris is a rhizomatous plant that can be transplanted at any time of the year if it is free of flowers and bare root.
The rhizomes are taken at the last moment by the mother plant and shipped to the bare root with their leaves topped with tips to facilitate the transplant.
The price refers to a rhizome of about 6 cm.

Warning: To prevent plants from remaining in storage, the shipment takes place from Monday to Wednesday.
