Aril irises are the unique and exotic irises native to the deserts and mountains of the Middle East. Arilbred (AB) are hybrids between any of the pure species and our normal bearded iris. The result of such crosses gives us the exotic flowers on plants that will grow in a larger variety of climates. Miniature Tall Bearded irises (MTB), also known as Table Irises, make great cut flowers. They have many delicate blossoms held neatly on slender stalks. MTB's grow 16 to 27 inches.
