Intermediate Bearded or IB irises are 40-70cm in height, with blooms 9 - 13 cm in width.
They have a substantially erect habit with stalks extending above the foliage. NB. rhizomes of IB's are smaller than TB's.
Being shorter, often scented and reblooming they are perfect for the front of a garden border, near a path, window or seat from where you can enjoy the scent and colours close up.
The IB class generally flower between the Standard Dwarf Bearded and the Tall Bearded irises.
