Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Description'Yarai' hybrid iris (Iris pseudata) may just about be the most elegant plant we've ever seen. Simply put, we were entranced by its blooms when we first laid our eyes upon it. Peachy flowers with rich purple veining and a prominent yellow eye, wow, year after year. They stand out against its green foliage, creating a dreamy display you won't want to miss. Forming in clumps, 'Yarai' looks stunning in rain gardens or along a water's edge. This remarkable iris results from a cross between Iris pseudocorus (yellow flag) x Iris ensata (Japanese Iris).DetailsBotanical name: Iris pseudata 'Yarai' Common name: Japanese Iris Zone: 4 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 26-30in x 44-48in Flower color: Peach with purple veining Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Spring-Summer Uses: Accent, Rain Gardens, Cut Flower, Border Plant, Mass Planting, Specimen, Woodland Shade, Cottage Garden, PondsHow To GrowSoil: Performs best in well-drained moist soil. Plant in acidic, rich soil that has been amended with compost. Light: Thrives in part to full sun, but does best in full sun. Water: 'Yarai' does best with sufficient moisture.

I’m new to this area and it has been trial and error on what I can get to grow but the irises are doing well I’m happy to say.
Iris has taken root and is doing well.
I am very happy with every plant I have purchased from GPS! Arrive quickly, packed well and extremely healthy. When I once received the wrong plant, they quickly sent the one I ordered at no extra cost.
I have many different iris'. This is one of my favorites! I wouldn't hesitate to purchase - very unique to my garden.
Too early to tell
Yara iris is alive, in my rain garden. Not sure it’s expected to bloom this season.
