Iris Species Reticulata

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Often one of the first bulbs to bloom in February, Iris reticulata adds a dash of vibrant colour to the garden with its rich violet flowers.

The charming blooms are sweetly scented and attractive to bees and early pollinators. The lower petals, known as falls, feature a central bold yellow stripe and a splash of white.

Plant the bulbs to naturalise in garden borders and rockeries where they will naturalise with ease in well-drained soil, in a spot which receives full sun or is in dappled shade. Soil should remain moist in spring and can be allowed to dry out during the summer months.

Iris reticulata can also be grown successfully in pots.
