Dark standards give way to intricate patterns along the falls of Sorbonne Bearded Iris. It's dramatic and intensely ruffled, a flower form worthy of its Award of Merit by the American Iris Society. Sorbonne blooms around mid to late spring, just in time for the big spring show. It's a fantastic perennializer too, multiplying over the years so you can divide the rhizomes and get more Sorbonne for your garden. You can also put it into a cutting garden to spice up your cut-flower bouquets. Iris germanica 'Sorbonne'
