If you've ever wondered how to plant japanese iris bulbs this is the place to find out. The first
consideration is to decide upon a suitable location in your yard or garden for the plants.
The japanese irises enjoy wet soils and can even be planted partially submerged in the margins of
your garden pond. Growing two to three feet tall with white to lavender colored blooms some measuring up to six
inches across, Japanese irises make a bold statement in early to mid summer. These plants thrive in full sun or
part shade. Once the plant has formed a large clump, it can be divided. They are hardy in zones 5-9.
By some regarded as the best, brightest yellow Japanese iris is "Jubiliant Spirit". Always a
cheerful sight in moist areas with plenty of big, 5" blooms. Another favorite is "Dramatic Moments" with even
larger 6" flowers in shades of lavender.
Before planting japanese iris bulbs prepare the ground thoroughly by digging and forking in some
compost or other organic material together with some general fertilizer. The bulbs should be planted one to two
inches deep and twelve to eighteen inches apart. A two inch thick layer of mulch will help retain moisture and
maintain even soil temperatures. It will also help to suppress weeds.
