In Love with Japanese Irises
Blooms for a month
Blossoms last about three days in the garden or two days in a vase. If you plant early-, mid- and late-season varieties, you should have blooms for almost four weeks.
Try yellow coreopsis varieties as companions for Japanese irises, John says, because they bloom at the same time in a pleasing color combination.
