IRIS

The reticulatata iris are early flowering bulbs with brightly coloured flowers and grass like leaves. They are normally planted on a sunny rock garden but they can be rather short lived. we plant them with snowdrops in part shade where they clump up. Their small iris flowers are in shades of blue and purple. Some varieties suvh as Harmony are very useful for pots as the leaves remain short when the flowers appear. Reticulata irises are frequently planted as annuals, but these bulbous irises will grow on if planted deeply or in a fairly moist, shady situation. Height 6" and the bulbs flower mainly in February. The juno iris look rather like asmall flowering leek with yellow and white flowers between the leaves. They flower in April and like full sun such as a rock garden. The Dutch or florist iris come in an amazing range of jewel colours and need a dry sunny position. They make excellent cut flowers.The black or mourning widow iris, iris tuberosa, has amazing green and black flowers. It has unusual tubers rather than bulbs and will spread to form large patches under trees.

Bulbous iris are planted as dormant bulbs in the autumn, 4" deep and 4" apart. They are summer dormant.
