Iris reticulata and danfordiae
We love what these low-growing and lovely Dutch favorites do to barren, early-season landscapes. In late winter, even before the first daffodils or tulips have emerged, you will be amazed by the appearance of these gorgeous dwarf iris varieties. Perfect for adding much-needed color to front borders, under deciduous trees or as a colorful mixed bed planting, these beauties give the entire area a taste of the warm spring days to come. Plant in groups of three or more for lush displays that really draw all eyes to your property. Try mixing all the colors together for a kaleidoscopic effect from late winter to early spring.
Planting Dwarf Iris Bulbs
Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. Space the bulbs 3-4" apart and 2" deep in clumps of 4-6. Water well during their growth period. Mulch lightly over the winter for protection. Leave undisturbed after foliage dies back. Iris reticulata blooms February-March, and Iris danfordiae blooms late January-early February. They are hardy in zones 4-9.
