    One of the earliest bulbs into bloom each year, the reticulata iris make fine additions to alpine beds, pots, windowboxes, and front of border positions. This is a relatively new form. It's delicate appearance belies the fact that it is in fact pretty tough, often having to push its way up through the snow. The petals are a soft blue, and the falls are each freckled with stronger blue and have a yellow blush. It's really pretty.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 5cm deep and 5 - 10cm apart in the autumn, in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Water moderately while they are actively growing and keep reasonably dry during their dormant period.

Very pretty, delicate flowers.




gorgeous delicate early flower


I haven't grown these before but they have shot up this week like a small shower of delicate pale blue and white growing at the base of an olive tree in a big pot in a sunny position by the front door. Yellowish buds before the flowers open. Makes you want to get in close and admire the flowers.

A dainty charmer!


'Painted Lady ' Irises are delicate&very beautiful in appearance but are deceptively strong. I planted them in pots but they would look good in the border too. They are mainly white in colour with tiny blue tips on the end of the flowers. They have flowered for about a month in February/March and have brightened my days.
