Iris 'Total Recall' / Total Recall Iris

×

Synonym Names:

Family: Iridaceae

Location:

'Total Recall' is a tall bearded iris with large, soft yellow blooms on 28-38 inch tall stalks and bold, sculptural foliage. Usually blooms 3-4 times per year. Low winter chill requirement. Tall Bearded Irises are durable perennials with stunning blooms and handsome silvery grey-green foliage that can survive 3 summer months with no irrigation. In Southern California they are far more heat/drought tolerant than our native irises. Some varieties can bloom 5 times/year. Tall bearded irises prefer average garden conditions with at least a half day equivalent of full sun. Avoid heavy, soggy summer soils, full shade and poor air circulation. In areas with little frost, use low-chill varieties. Plant with succulents and California natives, with more traditional perennials, in large containers or rooftop gardens. They thrive in bioswales/rain gardens and tolerate salty soils, wind and deer.  Information by: John Schoustra www.greenwoodgarden.com 562-755-1413
