    Several types of irises, including decorative varieties of Florentine iris (Iris Florentina), pale iris (I. pallida) and German (I. Germanica), are used in medicine. They contain in the rhizomes a substance with the aroma of violets, which is used in the manufacture of perfumes, wines, and confectionery. Its aroma is light, fresh, sweet, woody, floral with a violet tone - it gives a sense of harmony. Rhizomes are harvested in the third year after planting. German iris is less valued than other species due to the woody-earthy hue of the smell. Visiting the exhibitions of collectors of German irises, pay attention to fragrant varieties with aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, allspice, exotic fruits.
    Aromatic varieties: flower - Mulled Wine, Romantic Evening, Thin Blue Line, New Centurion, Morning Mood, flower-caramel Cloud Ballet, caramel with tangerine Stop the Music, Sneezy, flower with citrus note Fruit Coctail, flower-lime Lime lighter, vanilla with citrus note - Arabian Story.

    Iris is a surprisingly beautiful plant, which, like a rainbow, colors our flower beds with various colors in late May - early June. Since childhood, I was attracted to this plant, its bizarre, intricately shaped flowers and a very pleasant aroma. Only we called him not an iris, but a "cockerel."
    I am particularly delighted by the modern varieties of iridescent colors, for example: orange-red {Apache Warrior), pink-lilac {Dusky Evening}, yellow-blue (Edith Wolford), blue-blue (Blue Bird Wine). Just breathtaking from such beauty!
    I always plant my irises in well-lit areas, not

    subject to flooding, well drained soils. If the soil on your sites is acidic, they need to make dolomite flour or wood ash. In the shade, irises never have, since without the sun these plants bloom poorly and often fall ill.
    I feed irises three times per season. The first time is at the beginning of plant growth. For this I use urea (I dilute 1 tablespoon of fertilizer in a 10-liter bucket of water). The second time I feed the plants during the period of bud formation: in the same bucket of water I breed 1 tbsp. l. potassium sulfate. 2 weeks after flowering, I arrange the third feeding - I breed 1 tbsp. l. nitrophosphate in a bucket of water.
