Do you grow your irises in a separate bed just for iris bulbs or do you put them in a mixed bed? Just wondering ! :)

My tall beardeds are in with roses and drought resistant perrenials. This was the 1st year there was simultaneous bloom! (with the roses). Exciting.

RE: Iris Bed or Mixed Bed

Mine are mixed in with other perennials and roses too. I have one bed in my veggie garden for irises that I have no place for, but I move those into the garden as soon as I find a spot.

RE: Iris Bed or Mixed Bed

Bearded are in their own bed. In this climate, they do not play well with other plants.

Siberians are in mixed beds.

RE: Iris Bed or Mixed Bed

I have both, my iris only beds are bordered by dayliles.
