About Center Line - Bearded Iris

Iris germanica

Seed Type Rhizome

Like being wrapped up in your grandmother's apron, Center Line Bearded Iris welcomes us with warm, upturned, and ruffled falls. Contrast veining and bright orange beards invigorate the cameo pink standards. Pale pink-cream falls striped with dark red-purple veins covering two thirds of the center adds to make Center Line a true favorite. It is easy to see why this variety won Honorable Mention in 2013 and the Award of Merit in 2015.
