Genus:  Iris
Tall bearded iris tolerates dappled shade, but full sun promotes maximum flowering of deep red blooms. Spring or fall is the time to deadhead and cut the foliage back. This perennial makes a wonderful backdrop to spring bulbs. ‘Rip City’ is just one of hundreds of cultivars of tall bearded iris.
Care:  Tall bearded iris thrives in well-drained soils of medium moisture. Thin then before they become overcrowded, and give them as much sun as possible.
Propagation: 

Division, offsets

Problems: 

Wash your hands after working with the plant as its tissue can cause severe irritation if ingested.
