IRIS 'Broadway Star'
Bearded Iris, Breadway Star Iris, Tall Bearded Iris
The beautiful bicolored flowers of 'Broadway Star' make this tall bearded iris a big hit in the early summer garden. First introduced by Schreiner's in 1957, it has large, six-petaled blooms with three butter-cream petals that curve upwards, called standards, and three red-brown petals that curve downwards, called falls. These are fragrant and have distinctive yellow beards at the base of each fall. Like all bearded iris, ‘Broadway Star’ has sword-shaped, medium green leaves that are equitant, or fan-like, which are born from slow-spreading bulbous rhizomes.
This hybrid iris prefers full to part sun and rich soil with good drainage. Bearded iris make great cut-flowers and will help any old-fashioned garden shine!
