MORE INFORMATION

A sea of colour can be found on this dwarf iris, which boasts striking blue flowers and delightful petals in memorable shades of yellow and white.

Wonderfully versatile and ideal for growing in pots or borders, the 'reticulata Blue' Iris is known for being fragrant and for attracting bees and other pollinators, owing to its early season nectar.

Preferring well drained soil and a sunny location, this variety will happily naturalise and spread, returning bigger and better for years to come. The bulbs can even be lifted and divided in autumn for even more displays.

Supplied as 35 bulbs, size 5/7 ready for planting in autumn.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Iris reticulata

  • Plant your irises where they will receive full sun in soil that drains well.
  • Heavy soil can be broken up by adding horticultural grit or sharp sand.
  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.


Aftercare Advice

  • Leave them in the ground once they die back – they’ll come back bigger and better each year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.
