The website will be closed for 2019 as I am taking the year off from iris selling to revamp part of the garden and enjoy some personal activities. Any rhizome sales will be done on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/theshadyspot/ so be sure to "Like" it so you don't miss updates!
The arilbreds and arilbred median irises are those developed from wild bearded species found in the Middle East and Central Asia. They have had a reputation for being difficult to grow but hybridizers have now developed new hybrids that will grow alongside your other beardeds with no special care. They do require a well drained soil and prefer dry summer conditions. For more information visit the Aril Society International website: http://www.arilsociety.org/
