How to Grow

The Iris White thrives in full sun to partial shade and does well in a variety of soil types. It is a hardy plant that can withstand drought conditions once established, making it a great choice for low-maintenance gardens. To grow, simply plant the rhizomes in well-draining soil and water regularly until roots are established.

Care Tips

To ensure the best growth for your Iris White, it is important to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer, and prune away any dead or damaged foliage as needed.


The graceful blooms of the Iris White make it a popular choice for adding a touch of beauty to any garden. It is also a great choice for adding height and texture to mixed borders or as a backdrop for other plants.

Planting Tips

When planting your Iris White, be sure to choose a location that receives plenty of sunlight and has well-draining soil. Space the plants 12-18 inches apart to allow for proper growth and air circulation.


Once established, the Iris White requires very little maintenance. Simply water regularly and prune away any dead or damaged foliage as needed. If desired, you can divide the rhizomes every few years to promote healthy growth.
