Irises will decorate any garden, they have many varieties, types and colors. But usually irises are called briefly: Siberian iris, milky white iris, xiphoid iris, etc.

Garden irises can be divided into:

- beardless;

- bearded;

- comb;

- bulbous.

It is better to plant irises in a place open to the sun. or where there is a light shade from the trees, or so that at least the sun illuminates the plants in the first half of the day. Irises are suitable for neutral, dry soil, on acidic soil they do not bloom, but they grow well, and when the soil moisture is high, they do not feel well.

The area for irises needs to be cleared of weeds and dug up, fertilizers can be applied, but not manure. It is necessary to plant the iris rhizome carefully, too deep rhizome will develop poorly, but too high planting is not suitable for iris. The rhizome should be near the surface, and the roots of the irises should be spread out at the planting site so that they hold the plant. After planting, the plant must be shed well.

It is necessary to feed irises only with mineral fertilizers. three times per season, in spring, during budding and after flowering. It is necessary to carry out surface weeding and remove weeds, water should only be done during planting and in severe drought.

It is better to replant the plant immediately after that it sticks well. It is necessary to divide at the same time as the transplant, and the rhizome should be broken so that each part has a green feather, that is, a leaf. Then the leaf is cut in half, the roots are reduced by a third, the rhizome is dried, and the scrap is treated with a composition of crushed coal and sulfur and the iris is planted in a permanent place.
