Iris 'April Fanfare' is a study in violet and muted pinks with a musk fragrance.
'April Fanfare' is a study in violet and muted pinks with violet-purple standards that fade at the edges to a slate buff and buff peach falls with warm purple tips below coral orange beards. Musk fragrance. Blooms mid to late season on 15 inch stems. The standard dwarf bearded iris (SDB) are hybrids involving Iris pumila and other species and hybrids. They look like the classic tall bearded iris but in miniature and often with the flowers near the top of the bluish straplike leaves. Use them at the front of the border, along pathways, and in rockeries in full sun in average to dry situations. Divide every two to three years (or when clumps become congested and flowering decreases) just after blooming. Trim the foliage back to a third and plant the rhizomes at or just below soil level. Deer and rabbit resistant.
