Plant Finder: about Iris unguicularis ‘Mary Barnard’

Common names

Algerian iris


Iris unguicularis ‘Mary Barnard’ (Algerian iris). This has dark purple-blue flowers.


They are fully hardy, but some groups may thrive only in specific growing conditions. All irises are best planted in late summer and early autumn. Outdoors you can grow them in well drained, fertile, neutral or slightly acid or alkaline soil in full sun to lightly dappled shade. In order for irises to thrive, most of them need long, hot summers. Irises that require protection from rain or frost should be grown under glass.
