Iris Species Katharine Hodgkin

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



An outstanding variety of reticulata Iris, producing breathtaking flowers during February and March.

Iris ‘Katharine Hodgkin’ holds an Award of Garden Merit from the RHS for its exquisite looks and excellent attributes.

The exceptional flowers feature soft bluish-green standards and falls, with slate blue veins and freckles, standing out against a glowing yellow stripe.

Excellent for rockery and alpine gardens and perfect for pot displays.

Plant the bulbs in autumn, into well-drained moisture retentive soil and add a layer of sharp grit to the top of container plantings to deter garden molluscs and weeds.

This sweet and dainty Iris will thrive in a sunny spot - be sure to grow it where you will appreciate the delicate beauty up close.
